Representatives from Our Lady’s Secondary School attended the Ulster Ladies GAA All Star Awards presentation in Kelly’s Inn, Ballygawley last Friday February 23rd as Niamh Kerr, Jennifer Duffy & Jayne Drury collected their All Star Awards.

Niamh is daughter of Ciaran & Ann Kerr from Annyalla and plays her club football with O’ Neill Shamrocks. This is the second year in a row that Niamh has been selected on the Ulster Colleges All Star team matching the achievement of her brother Barry who received Ulster Colleges All Stars in 2014 & 2015. Jennifer is daughter of Mick & Patricia Duffy from Carrickaderry, Clontibret and also plays her club football with O’ Neill Shamrocks, this being Jennifer’s first All Star Award. Jayne is the daughter of Stephen & Marie Drury from Ballybay and plays her club football with the St. Brigid’s Club in Ballybay. Jayne is the youngest ever Ulster Ladies Colleges All Star in Our Lady’s. All three girls were members of the Ulster interprovincial panel that successfully defended their title at the interprovincial tournament in Kinnegan, Westmeath at the end of January.

Speaking at the school during the week the Principal Mr. Kelly congratulated the girls on their outstanding achievement ‘for a school to have one Ulster Colleges All Star in any year is a fantastic achievement but to have three representatives on the team in one year is a huge honourand one of which we are very proud. All three girls are excellent role models for their peers and for the younger students in the school and I’ve no doubt that they have great futures ahead of them in Gaelic Games.’
