Player of the Month awards for Kelly, Murphy and Healy

November 24, 2017

Mayo's Grace Kelly, Fermanagh's Sharon Murphy and Noelle Healy of Dublin.

THE Croke Park Hotel Player of the Month award winners for August, September and October have been announced.

The respective recipients are Mayo's Grace Kelly, Fermanagh's TG4 All-Ireland junior medallist Sharon Murphy and Dublin's TG4 All-Ireland senior winner Noelle Healy.

Kelly claimed the August award after starring in Mayo's senior championship victories over Kildare and Donegal.

Kelly, from the Moy Davitts club, scored 1-3 as Mayo defeated Kildare and the in-form attacker followed up with 1-4 in a player-of-the-match display in the TG4 All-Ireland quarter-final win against Donegal.

The September Croke Park Hotel Player of the Month is Noelle Healy, from the St Brigid's club in Dublin.

Healy, who is contention for the Players' Player of the Year award and a TG4 All-Star at tomorrow evening's gala banquet, was player-of-the-match as Dublin stormed to All-Ireland senior glory against Mayo.

Healy scored two goals in the semi-final win against Kerry in August, and delivered another powerhouse display as the Sky Blues won the Brendan Martin Cup for the first time since 2010.

For her exploits as Fermanagh claimed TG4 All-Ireland junior success, Sharon Murphy is the Croke Park Hotel Player of the Month for October.

Murphy, from the Lisnaskea club, netted a late penalty to take the drawn final against Derry to a replay, before delivering four points as the Erne County emerged victorious in Clones.
