Clare ladies football boss Evan Talty says it is no surprise to see Niamh O’Dea in the running to be chosen as the 2021 intermediate player of the year.

The Banner Ladies clubwoman is part of a three strong shortlist for the award, alongside Westmeath duo Sarah Dillon and Lucy McCartan.

The Kilfenora native was in outstanding scoring form across the season for Clare, amassing a personal tally of 3-13 during their run to the quarter finals.
