Aimee Mackin has been awarded July's The Croke Park/LGFA player of the month award.

The Shane O'Neills forward hit 3-22 against Monaghan, Cavan and Mayo as Armagh topped Group 1 in the All-Ireland Championship.

Ultimately the Orchard County would lose to surprise package Meath - who on Sunday booked their place in the final - in the last eight, but they will have a chance to claim provincial honours against Donegal this weekend.

Mackin has continued a rich vein of form which saw her win last year's player of the year prize, adding a further 1-06 to her summer tally in that defeat to the Royals.

It has left her top of the scoring charts and in pole position to claim the inaugural ZuCar Golden Boot award with just next month's decider between Dublin and Meath to come.
