Offaly Player Ellen Dolan Wins SSE Airtricity Women’s Premier Division Player of the Month

In a thrilling announcement, former Mucklagh FC player Ellen Dolan has been awarded the prestigious title of SSE Airtricity Women’s Premier Division Player of the Month for May 2024. This marks her second time receiving this accolade, with her first win being in October/November of the previous year. Dolan, who now plays for Peamount, has proven herself to be a standout talent in the league.

At just 17 years old, the Offaly native showcased her skills by scoring seven goals last season, securing her place as the joint second top goal-scorer for the League-winning Peamount team.

Dolan’s journey to success doesn’t stop there, as she was also a key player for the Irish U-19s side, helping them qualify for the EURO finals tournament in Lithuania. Her contributions to the team have not gone unnoticed, as she continues to make waves in the world of women’s football.

Additionally, another talented player from Offaly, Aoife Murphy-O’Connor from Tullamore, has been included in the training camp for the upcoming tournament. The future looks bright for these young athletes as they aim to make their mark on the international stage.
