Mayo’s Sarah Rowe has been named AFLW Irish Player of the year.

16 Irish women lined out competitively Down Under this season and the AFL Ireland Women’s team tracked their statistics in relation to goals, disposals, kicks, handballs, marks and tackles across each of the six rounds. 

The Kilmoremoy footballer, who was representing the Collingwood Magpies, came out on top ahead of Aisling McCarthy of Tipperary (Western Bulldogs) and Carnacon’s Cora Staunton (GWS Giants).

Kilfian’s Aileen Gilroy who plays for North Melbourne came fourth.

It is a tremendous achievement to see three Mayo players in the top five.
