Renee Fitzgerald is a former camogie player,[1] captain of the All Ireland Camogie Championship winning team in 1939, scoring four of Cork’s six goals in the final.[2]

Career[edit]

She won a further All Ireland senior medal in 1940, scoring two goals in Cork’s 4-1 to 2-2 defeat of Galway.[3] She scored a goal and had another controversially disallowed in Cork’s 1942 All Ireland final draw against Dublin, before Cork lost the replay. She reportedly scored six goals in Cork’s 11-4 to 1-0 defeat of Limerick in the 1942 Munster final.
