Armagh’s 2020 All-Star’s

While we wait for the 2021 season to kick off, the Armagh ladies are still revelling in the success of 2020.

Ronan Murphy’s side caught the attention of the country with some jaw-dropping displays throughout the year.

They pushed eventual All-Ireland Champions Dublin all the way and captured the Ulster title for the first time since 2014.

On Saturday evening, the heroes of the LGFA Championships were rewarded for their efforts at the TG4 All-Star awards.

Armagh secured three spots on the Senior Team of the Year, which will come as no surprise for anyone who witnessed the Orchard County in action last year.

Clodagh McCambridge, recognised as one of the best full backs in the business, claimed the number three position.

The Clann Eireann defender was a brick wall on the edge of the square last year and deservingly picked up an All-Star.

Another part of the rock-solid defence, Blaithin Mackin, slotted into the team at centre half back.

While Mackin never ditched her defensive duties, it was he forays up the field that allowed her to catch the eye.

In the forwards, Armagh secured another award with Aimee Mackin deservingly finding her place at wing half forward.

Mackin was without doubt the best player on show in last year’s championship and that proved the case as the Shane O’Neill’s star was named Player of the Year.

And if that wasn’t enough, the silverware continued as Mackin also claimed the 2020 Goal of the Year for her incredible three-pointer against Dublin!

A brilliant season topped off perfectly for the Armagh ladies, who will look forward to building on that success in 2021.
