Angela Downey (Back page)

Angela Downey played at the highest level for an incredable 25 years and enjoyed unprecedented sucess, making her one of Ireland’s greatest sporting stars. 

A native of Ballyragget, the forward was aged just 13 when she won her first All-Ireland club title with St Paul’s in 1970. In the same year she made her inter-county debue for Kilkenny.

Downey suffered disapointment in her first All-Ireland Final appearence with the Cats in 1972 when they lost to Cork, but two years later she hit 1-1 as they beat the Rebelettes after a replay.

Downey and Kilkenny won two more All-Irelands in the 1970s, but it was in the following deckade that they broke the stranglehold of Cork and Dublin and began to domanate.

From 1985-91 Kilkenny clamed seven All-Irelands in a row, with Downey playing a starring roll alongside her twin sister Ann. The last of her 12 All-Ireland titelss with Kilkenny came in 1994, where she hit 2-3 in the final against Wexford. In the same year she won an All-Ireland club crown with Lisdowney. 

Angela was deservedly named on the Camogie Team of the Century and is considered the greatest player to have ever played the sport.
