Thursday, December 5, 2019
Rena sparkled for Donoughmore as they landed the All-Ireland Junior Club Championship title on November 24.
During the month of November, 32-year-old Rena was in superb form, scoring a combined 1-13 in the All-Ireland semi-final and Final.
As Donoughmore advanced past the challenge of Meath and Leinster Champions Navan O’Mahonys at the All-Ireland semi-final stage, Rena collected a personal haul of 1-6.
On All-Ireland Final day, seven points from Rena helped to see off the spirited challenge of Mayo opponents MacHale Rovers in front of a bumper crowd at Duggan Park, Ballinasloe.
Victory for Donoughmore handed Rena a 21st All-Ireland medal, and her third at club level.
Rena was a member of the Donoughmore teams that landed the All-Ireland Senior club titles in 2001 and 2003, before recently adding a Junior medal to her collection.
At inter-county level, Rena is an 11-time TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship winner with Cork, while she also won seven All-Ireland Senior camogie medals with her county.
Rena was presented with her award today by Ina Lazar, Sales Manager, The Croke Park, and she was joined at the presentation by parents Tim and Helen Buckley.
