Sharon Glynn was honoured with the Medtronic Galway Sports Stars Hall of Fame award for 2019.
Sharon was the driving force in Galway’s first ever All-Ireland triumph in 1996, and her legendary camogie career also featured five club All-Ireland titles with the great Pearses team in 1996, 1997, 2000, 2001 and 2002. A gifted and powerful presence on the field, Sharon is breaking new ground as the first woman to receive the Hall of Fame accolade in the 55-year history of the awards.
By 2003, Glynn, who made her senior debut for the Tribeswomen as a goalkeeper in 1991 before subsequently moving outfield to become one of the game’s greatest ever forwards, had done it all in the Galway jersey.
She won an All-Ireland senior medal with the ground-breaking side of 1996 – defeating Cork 4-8 to 1-15 in the decider – and claimed National League titles in 1994 and 2002. In those two league finals, the sharpshooter tallied an accumulated 3-11, 3-2 from play, underlining the quality player she was.
