Family background

She is a niece of Cork football manager Billy Morgan. Her sister Deirdre played on the University of Limerick team that won their second Ashbourne Cup in 2004. Her brother Brian is a well-known GAA journalist.


She played in eight successive All Ireland finals for Tipperary. In 2001, she scored 1-2 in Tipperary’s All-Ireland final win and she was selected as the RTÉ Player of the Match. She scored a goal and had another controversially disallowed in 2002 and was player-of-the-match despite finishing on the losing team in 2003. She had a penalty saved in 2004 when she laid off the match-winning goal for Joanne Ryan.
