Best memory in ladies football: Winning the Junior B Championship final against Kilcullen in 2011 (my first adult success). And any of our final wins to be honest. You have to enjoy them when they come around and the craic back in the GAA is as much a part of it as anything. Sharing them moments with such a great bunch of girls is a special time.

Worst memory in Ladies Football: Losing to Naas by a point in the Junior A Championship final 2012, that one still hurts.

Advice for younger players: “Pass the ball to me.” laughs. Ahh no work hard in training, listen to your mentors, enjoy your matches and if some part of your game needs improving, work extra hard on it.
