James O’Donoghue The Latest Kerry Player To Win Munster GAA Accolade

Posted by


KERRY’S James O’Donoghue has been named as Munster GAA Senior Footballer of the Year 2017.

His win follows on from the announcement of other Kerry winners — David Clifford  in the minor category, Killian Spillane in the junior category and Patrice Diggin from Causeway winning camogie player of the year.

Patrice Diggin’s display in the Junior Final against Cork in May saw her account for 13 of Kerry’s 14-point haul earning her the Player of the Game accolade.

In February she captained UL Ashbourne Final victory; with Clanmaurice she added the Junior Club Championship title to her honours. She also makes time for the development of Camogie in Kerry, and is a familiar figure to all involved in Camogie in the Kingdom, promoting the game.

Killarney Legion man O’Donoghue was in outstanding form in the Munster championship against both Clare and Cork.

Against Cork he scored seven points his way to a sixth Munster medal. Unfortunately against Mayo in the semi-final, Kerry came a cropper but O’Donoghue is fighting fit for next year’s campaign.

The awards will be presented on Saturday night at a gala dinner in the Fota Island Resort Hotel in Cork where all the award winners for 2017 will be honoured.
