Three Donegal women nominated for 2023 TG4 All-Stars

Three Donegal women have been nominated for 2023 TG4 Ladies Football All-Star Awards.

Moville duo Niamh McLaughlin and Niamh Hegarty and Amy Boyle Carr from Naomh Conaill have all been selected for their performances in helping Donegal win the Ulster title and reaching the quarter-final of the All-Ireland Championship.

The Donegal trio are part of a 45-person shortlist dominated by All-Ireland Senior Finalists Dublin and Kerry.


McLaughlin won the GAA ladies senior football player of the year award in 2022 as she was nominated along with Hegarty last year.

One goalkeeper will be chosen from the shortlist of three, with three players selected from each of the full-back, half-back, half-forward and full-forward lines for inclusion in the TG4 All Star team, along with two midfielders from the six nominated.

The 2023 TG4 All Star team will be announced at a gala banquet at The Bonnington Dublin Hotel on Saturday, November 18.
