Sarsfields’ Caoimhe Kelly named on Minor Camogie All-Star Team of the Year

Electric Ireland is delighted to spotlight 15 exceptional players from this season’s Camogie Minor Championships, as it unveils the 2024 Electric Ireland Camogie Minor Star Team of the Year. This season, once again saw some exceptional performances across the country, with Tipperary emerging as eventual champions, claiming the All-Ireland Minor Camogie title. A strong Waterford side finished as runners-up, having reached their second consecutive final.

In this year’s Electric Ireland Camogie Minor Star Team of the Year, Tipperary is well represented with six players included, while beaten finalists Waterford have three representatives on the team. Beaten semi-finalists, Kilkenny and Cork are also represented on this year’s team with three and two players respectively, while Caoimhe Kelly (Sarsfields) from the Galway panel also features.

This year’s Electric Ireland Minor Star Camogie Player of the Year is Tipperary’s Sarah Corcoran. The Moycarkey-Borris maestro captained her side to All-Ireland victory with a string of outstanding performances in the competition. Corcoran’s strong presence in the Tipperary defence made life difficult for every attacker that came up against her, particularly in the All-Ireland Final where she also picked up the Player of the Match award.
