Cork forward Orla Finn has been honoured with The Croke Park/LGFA Player of the Month award for May.

Finn, 27, from the Kinsale club, has been acknowledged for a series of sparkling performances for in-form Cork.

Finn was Player of the Match in the Lidl National League Division 1 Final victory over Galway on May 5, when she scored five points, including three frees, at Parnell Park.

That tally took Orla’s League haul to an incredible 1-55, and she was duly named on the Division 1 Lidl Team of the National League.

Cork also opened the defence of their TG4 Munster Senior Championship crown on May 26 against Waterford and Finn, a 2018 TG4 All Star, was in red-hot form again.

As the Leesiders claimed a big victory at Cork IT, Finn chipped in with an individual contribution of 11 points, including seven from play.

Cork defeated Kerry on June 1 to seal a place in the Munster Final, and they’ll aim to retain their title next Sunday (June 16) when they renew acquaintances with Waterford at Fraher Field, Dungarvan (6.30pm).
