Emma Duggan, one of the leading lights in Meath's memorable TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship triumph, has been honoured with the Croke Park/LGFA Player of the Month award for September.

Duggan, 19, scored 1-02 in a thrilling final defeat of Dublin earlier this month as the Royal County claimed the Brendan Martin Cup for the first time.

On a historic afternoon, Duggan’s long-range goal in the first half proved decisive as Meath claimed a 1-11 to 0-12 victory against their Leinster neighbours.

Duggan’s crucial haul capped a sensational individual championship campaign for the Dunboyne player, who finished with 3-19 in total. That combined tally also included 1-05 against Cork in the semi-final.
