ANTRIM Camogie star Róisín McCormack has been named on the Electric Ireland Camogie Third Level Rising Stars 2024 Team of the Year for the second year in a row.

The Loughgiel sharpshooter filled the full forward position on last years team and is named at centre half forward for 2024.

McCormack led the line for TUD last season when the Dublin University landed their first ever Ashbourne Cup title, with her last-minute strike sealing the deal against UCC.

McCormack was part of the TUD side that once again reached the Ashbourne Cup final back in mid-February, but they lost out to Limerick University by 14-points this time around, 6-11 to 1-12 at the University of Galway Connacht GAA Air Dome.

Despite ending up on the losing team in the decider, McCormack was one of the stars of the show as she contributed all but one of TUD’s scores, landing a personal haul of 1-11.

McCormack is the only representative named on the Team of the Year and one of three TUD played to be awarded, alongside Wexford’s Orla Sinnott and Kerrie Finnegan of Dublin.

Ashbourne Cup winners UL dominate the selection, filling eight positions on the team while UCC and DCU (semi-finalists) are also represented.

UL and Tipperary attacker is this year’s Player of the Year. Casey had a fantastic year proving a nightmare for defenders throughout the tournament and finished off her campaign in style with a goal in the Ashbourne Cup final to seal the victory for UL.
