21 December 2016
Dublin's Olivia Leonard scores a goal against Meath.
Olivia Leonard was today named as the Croke Park Player of the Month after leading her club, St. Maur’s, to All Ireland Club Glory.
St. Maur’s overcame the challenge of Kinsale in a pulsating Junior All Ireland Club Final to claim the crown and their Dublin senior panellist, Olivia Leonard was instrumental in their success.
Although playing in midfield she contributed 1-05 to the scoreboard in St. Maur’s crucial victory and was named as the Player of the Match following her brilliant display.
Olivia was vital to St. Maur’s cause as she helped the club navigate their way through the Dublin and Leinster Championships and her experience was crucial as they required a replay to finally edge out Monaghan’s Latton in the All Ireland Semi Final.
Her displays throughout the Dublin and Leinster Championships saw Olivia named as the Croke Park Player of the Month for October with the award presented to her today by ‘The Croke Park’ Deputy Manager, Sean Reid.
