Aislinn McFarland (Bredagh)
The Antrim ladies captain enjoyed a super year in 2021 as she helped the Saffrons claim the Ulster junior football title and led them to their fourth ever All-Ireland junior final after an extra time victory over Carlow. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be on the day for Antrim, as they were eventually beaten by Wicklow. McFarland, also a great camogie player, starred on the football field for her club as they made the Ulster final, only to lose to Donaghmoyne after a replay.
Kevin Kealy (St Eunan’s)
2021 was a historic year for St Eunan’s as they completed the Football and Hurling double. Kevin Kealy starred for both teams and was one of the only players that played for both teams. Kealy’s biggest impact throughout the season was his game-winning goal against Setanta in the Donegal Hurling decider. The centre half forward rattled the net for St Eunan’s as they limped over the line, 2-9 to 0-14, in a dramatic final.
Oisin O’Hare (Carrickcruppen/Craobh Rua)
Oisin O’Hare was recently named the 2021 Armagh Junior Hurler of the Year and is a member of the Armagh under 20 football team this year. He was a crucial part of the Craobh Rua success story last season, helping them to back-to-back county titles along with a historic Ulster title. O’Hare was also a star on the Carrickcruppen team that landed the Armagh Intermediate Football crown. A fierce competitor, O’Hare was the go-to man-marker for the hurling and the football teams and starred in that particular role for both sides.
