After Meath's TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship victory, she 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 an unforgettable afternoon, the forward's long rage goal proved vital 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.

The story behind this Meath team is a sensational one, considering they just came from playing Intermediate level, to de-throning the champions and ending their long reign at the top.
