The Offaly ladies have reached the All-Ireland Quarter-final’s of the Intermediate championship and this weekend they will face Ulster champions Fermanagh in Mullahoran, Co Cavan at 1pm on Saturday. Offaly have had both a great league and Leinster championship campaign but they will be hoping for more silverware before 2015 is over. Dual star and up and coming young player Roisin Egan talks about her career as a player.
Name: Roisin Egan
Club: Naomh Ciaran
Sport: Ladies football and Camogie
Toughest opponent to mark for:
Club: It would have to be Mairead Daly or Hannah O’Neil (Foxrock) in feile was outrageous good!
County: Katie Murray- Waterford (one of the triplets)
Role Model growing up: My brother Colin/ Cora Staunton
Aspirations for this weekend: This weekend my hope is of course to come out with a win and be a step closer to Croker! We know Fermanagh are a good team but we believe and if we play to our potential we can do it, no doubt! It would be great lift for the team especially after the Leinster final defeat.
