Her influential on-field presence and leadership was rewarded with an Ashbourne All Star award. The goalkeeper has also had success within the Poc Fada Camogie Championships, capturing the Leinster title on the double in 2008 and 2009, however due to national championship fixture commitments with Wexford, she was unable to participate at National level in 2008 and 2009.
