Shelly led the Cats to victory over Cork in the Littlewoods Ireland Camogie League Final last year. With a packed home crowd in Nowlan Park, Kilkenny and Cork battled in out against each other. A victory for Kilkenny, Shelly climbed the steps of the Ardán Breathnach to lift the cup and be crown winners of the Littlewoods Ireland League Final, the third time in a row for the Cats.
We recently caught up with Shelly to find out some more about the woman behind the helmet and what this winning captain likes to get up to in her spare time!
