DROMCOLLOGHER celebrated on the double with the Milford camogie last Sunday.
Not only did the west Limerick village provide manager John Brudair but also Laura Stack.
Not just any ordinary player but at 16 years old, the youngest player on the field in the All Ireland senior camogie final in Croke Park.
While Milford were winning a third title in four seasons, this is Stack’s first win.
“It’s just unbelievable like, first day out for me. The team is so experienced and it’s just an honour for me to play with them,” said Stack.
Back in 2013, Stack was also on the Croke Park pitch, but part of the half time entertainment!
“We were in the little solo race, so it’s unbelievable to be actually playing and to score is the absolute icing on the cake,” she beamed.
“It’s unbelievable. I was expecting to be nervous but I was surprised I wasn’t but it’s just the other players make you feel so calm. I was afraid I’d be distracted when I came out on the pitch but I was okay. I don’t really get nerves on this team though. I was just bouncing off the players around me. They’re all so experienced. You couldn’t really feel nervous when there’s that sort of experience in the dressing room. They’re just great role models.”
Stack is a member of the Limerick minor camogie team.
“We played Cork last weekend. We lost so it was kind of sickening to lose to the neighbours; there was a good bit of slagging.”
