AUGUST - Caroline Sugrue, Ballinascarthy Camogie


For Caroline Sugrue, 2018 was the culmination of a dream come true, a dream that was almost turning into a nightmare. Caroline lives on the border of Bandon and Ballinascarthy, with cousin, Mark, being a star player on the Bandon GAA teams. She has played camogie with Ballinscarthy since her U.12 days because there was no camogie in Bandon at that time. Her first taste of stardom was with the Cork primary schools team when she was in 5th class and she has been involved with the county ever since. Over the past few years she has been involved with the Cork intermediate team and in 2018 they reached their third All-Ireland final, losing the first two. In 2017 they had disappointingly lost the final in a replay and were determined to succeed this season. With Sugrue starring in the forward line they won the league title early in the year and her dream came true in September when they the team went on to win the All-Ireland on the same day the senior team won against Kilkenny. To crown a great year she won the county junior B with her club, Ballinascarthy.
