GOALKEEPERS from Dublin, Kerry, Mayo and Meath have been nominated for the 2023 ZuCar Golden Glove award.

Dublin’s TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship winning goalkeeper Abby Shiels, Kerry’s Ciara Butler, Mayo’s Laura Brennan and Meath’s TG4 All Star goalkeeper Monica McGuirk are the four goalkeepers in with a chance of claiming the award from ZuCar, the LGFA’s Performance Partner, and sponsors of the ZuCar All-Ireland Ladies Minor Football Championships and Gaelic4Teens programme.

The ZuCar Golden Glove award was introduced in 2021 to acknowledge goalkeeping excellence during the TG4 All-Ireland Championships.

Longford’s Riane McGrath was the inaugural recipient and Laois goalkeeper Eimear Barry won the award in 2022.

Voting is now open to crown the 2023 winner and option A is an outstanding save by Dublin goalkeeper Abby Shiels against Cork in the TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship semi-final, from Daire Kiely’s blistering effort.

Option B is another excellent save, this time from Mayo goalkeeper Laura Brennan to keep out Armagh forward Aimee Mackin’s well-struck penalty in the group stages of the TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship.

Option C is a wonderful save from Meath goalkeeper Monica McGuirk during the TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship quarter-final, when Kerry forward Louise Ní Mhuircheartaigh looked certain to find the net.

And our option D is another penalty save, this time from Kerry’s Ciara Butler to repel Dublin captain Carla Rowe during the group stages of the All-Ireland series at Parnell Park.

Visit https://bit.ly/3OYo8li to vote and fans voting for their preferred choice will be in with a chance to win a ZuCar goodie pack.

The winning goalkeeper will be presented with the 2023 ZuCar Golden Glove award – and voting will close at 5pm on Wednesday September 6.

The winner of the 2023 ZuCar Golden Boot is Clare star Fidelma Marrinan, who finished as leading scorer in the 2023 TG4 All-Ireland Championships, with a haul of 5-38 for the TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Finalists.

Fidelma will be presented with her award, along with the Golden Glove winner, later this month. To find out more about ZuCar, visit: https://zucar.ie/
