Beth Carton collected Waterford’s first Senior Camogie All-Star at the Citywest hotel last night.
The De La Salle forward scored 3-36 in this year’s championship as Donal O’Rourke’s side defeated Limerick and Clare to reach the All Ireland quarter finals.
She was surprised to pick up the award. “I’m absolutely gobsmacked, wasn’t expecting it at all. I’m thrilled, thrilled for Waterford as well.”
All-Ireland champions Cork dominated the 2018 Camogie All-Stars team, taking seven of the 15 places on the team. Kilkenny’s Anne Dalton was named Player of the Year.
Beth Carton said that she was sharing the stage with many of her idols. “They’re absolute heroes of the game, they’re people you’ve look up to when you were young going to games. It’s an absolute honour to be on the same stage as them.”
