Ahead of the All Stars tomorrow night, we are going to take a look at the Galway nominees for the full back line!
We are delighted to have Dervla Higgins, Shauna Healy and Sarah Dervan all nominated for awards!
The corner-back for Galway back in the All Ireland Final in September 2021 had a fantastic defensive campaign as Galway surged to their second All-Ireland title in three years. The Ardrahan native has received a third All-Stars nomination and she will be looking to win her third consecutive All-Stars award, a testament to her solid performances over the past few years.
Dervla Higgins from the Athenry Club has been nominated in the full-back line after her standout performances throughout the 2021 season! Higgins was solid and robust in her performances in the rear guard for the Champions this year and as a result she has earned her first All-Stars Award nomination. The Athenry player is looking to add this accolade to her Soaring Stars Award from 2019.
Sarah Dervan, Galway’s most successful ever captain has also been nominated for an award! The two-time All-Ireland winning captain has had an incredible year for the Tribeswomen as she led her team to All-Ireland glory in September. The Mullagh star has received her seventh All-Stars Award nomination, with the previous six nominations proving successful. Her performances were those of a captain, as she marshalled the Galway side to victory.
