Orlagh Farmer probably spoke for all sports when she summed up her feelings following her last training session before the lockdown because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“I will never, ever complain about a training session again. That would be the last time we’d see each other for a few months,” said the Cork footballer.
Farmer claimed the Irish Times Sportswoman of the Month Award for May.
Dublin lightweight Kellie Harrington, a previous winner of the yearly award, won the Irish Times 2019/2020 Sportswoman of the month accolade for April.
The awards run over 12 months with an annual awards ceremony each December
