The first round of nomination selections saw Galway and Limerick finish with seven players each advancing to the official team picks after September’s All-Ireland Final.

Galway saw Craughwell’s Shauna Burke win the goalkeeping position while Kiltulla/Killimordaly’s Lorraine Ryan as named at left wing back.

And in attack, the Tribeswomen dominated taking five of the six slots.  Mullagh’s Aoife Donohue, Ardrahan’s Rebecca Hennelly and Cappataggle’s Caitriona Cormican complete the half forward line and they are joined by Oranmore/Maree’s Niamh Hanniffy and Clarinbridge’s Ciara Murphy.

Limerick’s Niamh Mulcahy completes the attacking sextet at right corner forward and the Shannonsiders dominate midfield through Sarah Carey and Karen O’Leary.  Sinead McNamara, Lorraine McCarthy and Marian Quaid are the full back line with Lisa Scanlon named at number five.

Interestingly, the poll topper was Kilkenny’s Meighan Farrell who was the clear-cut winner at 67% giving the league champions their sole representative.  All 15 players will be among the official list of 45 at the end of the year when Galway Daily picks its Team and Player of the Year.

The next round of selections will take place in July after the group stages of the All-Ireland series.
