A look at the Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Association Player of the League Awards for 2018!

The dedication and hard work of the Camogie players and managers was celebrated on Friday 4th of May, at the Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Association Player of the League awards!

This year marks Littlewoods Ireland’s second year of sponsoring the Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues. There were brilliant League campaigns across all three Divisions this year, which saw Kerry, Cork and Kilkenny all lift silverware.

The players’ hard work and dedication was celebrated at the Camogie Player of the League Awards, which was held in Croke Park on Friday, May 4th.

What was so special about these awards was that the winners were selected by the opposition managers, which highlighted the outstanding performances of all the nominees throughout the Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues for 2018.

Littlewoods Ireland was present at the awards and also proudly presented the Style of Playe award during the night. Here is a look at all the #StyleOfPlay from the night!
