Tyrone might consider themselves unfortunate to have lost the All-Ireland Ladies’ Intermediate Football Championship final to Tipperary, at Croke Park, but that was no fault of the Red Hands’ goalkeeper Shannon Lynch. The talented Castlederg player had a stormer between the posts and couldn’t have been blamed for the one shot that beat her.

Shannon brought off a string of super saves over the course of the final that prevented the losers suffering an even heavier defeat. Not only that, she was also in fine form during the semi-final defeat of Sligo during September and raises question why the Health Worker did not feature among the three nominations for an Allstar award this year.

Shannon (25) has been eight years in the Tyrone senior team playing in goals but her club position with St Eugene’ s is midfield. “I prefer playing in goals with the county,” she reveals, “although playing in midfield gives you a different vision of the game.”

Now with her county gear packed away for this year Shannon turns her attention back to club football.

“We have the Division Three league final coming up against Edendork and, naturally, we are hoping to win that and get promotion. We lost in the league and championship finals last season, by a point in each, so we don’t want to miss out again,” she stresses.
