This time on Sunday Meath Ladies will be out on the Croke Park pitch! What a day it will be for them. All in Meath will be hoping to see Máire lift the Mary Quinn cup and bring it back to the Royal County.
So lets meet our final two players on the list. Captain Máire O’Shaughnessy and Vice Captain Shauna Ennis.
Captain Máire O’Shaughnessy.
Máire plays her club football with Donaghmore/Ashbourne. Máire is a tireless worker both on and off the pitch. In 2018 Máire was made vice captain. It wasn’t a great year for the girls as they lost out to Wicklow in the first round of the championship. When 2019 season came around Máire was made captain, a role which she has taken in her stride. Máire reckons her job is a relatively easy one with so many leaders in the squad. Máire made her debut in 2013 against Dublin. Her day job is also a place where Máire has to show leadership and use her people skills. She is a Social Care Worker with Dublin’s Simon Community. Earlier in the year Máire lifted the Division 3 cup when the girls beat Sligo in the final. Fingers crossed for Máire and the girls on Sunday. There will be some craic in the O’shaughnessy house on Sunday morning with Máire’s mum Mary a Tip native! But we know who she will be supporting on the day! She’s a Royal at heart!! 💚💛💚💛
Vice Captain: Shauna Ennis.
Na Fianna club woman Shauna Ennis has had many years with Meath Ladies football. When you need someone solid, courageous and hard hitting in your centre back line there is no one like Shauna Ennis. If you get passed Shauna on the pitch you will be doing well. Shauna is also an excellent camogie player. Shauna made her debut against Dublin in 2013 so has plenty of experience of what will be needed on Sunday. This will be Shauna’s second trip to Croke Park on All Ireland Finals day. Shauna will apparently have the toughest job on Sunday!!! But you better believe it – She is more than capable in doing that job! Shauna has also been known to pop up with the odd score. Her day job is as a teacher.
