Quinn Building Products UGAAWA Merit Award for April 2019 April is a month that will live long in the memory of EIMEAR SMYTH and the past weekend got even better. But it is the month of April we concentrate on here as the Derrygonnelly Harps score-snatcher played a merry tune against Limerick in the semi-final of the Lidl Ladies' National Football League Division four. Eimear broke Limerick hearts as she bagged an amazing 1-12, from full-forward, in Fermanagh's stunning 2-15 to 4-7 victory, fully earned by two late points from their 'striker'. The winners were behind by 4-6 to 1-4 at half-time but allowed the opposition only one more point in the second half as Smyth produced a superb scoring display from play and free-kicks.. In the final against Antrim, Eimear backed up that performance with a 1-6 haul in the 2-6 to 1-10 victory, at Clones last Saturday, that takes Fermanagh up to Division Three for next season but that's a story for another day as the Mount Lourdes student has already put her hand up for recognition this month. For her April performances, the Harps' player earns the Quinn Building Contracts-Ulster GAA Writers' Merit Award for last month and was presented with her award by Quinn's Sales & Marketing Director Seamus McMahon at a reception in Quinn's Corner Roadhouse, Donaghmore. Smyth was a clear winner of the honour despite a strong challenge from Paul Brady, who bounced back from his bitter disappointment of injury ruling him out of the World Handball Championships, last August, to once again win the major PGA ProStop event in New York (likened to Tiger Woods sensational comeback recently) and the fact that Konrad Kowal became the first Polish-born player to win an All- Ireland Handball Championship when he partnered Eoghan McGinnity to clinch the All-Ireland Minor Doubles Championship for Monaghan. “I'm delighted with this monthly award,” says Eimear who, also, won the UGAAWA Cormac McAnallen Young Achiever Award for 2017. “Many great players have received the Monthly Merit Award over the years and it is a great honour to be listed among them. Beating Limerick, after such a comeback in the second half, was tremendous. We have a lot of young players in the panel and they all stood up to what was needed.” Her April success is all the more remarkable because of the fact the she is fully immersed in his A Levels examinations at Mount Lourdes in Enniskillen but she seems to be able to combine her studies with her football, both at high levels. For her April award, Eimear receives an engraved Belleek Living Vase, training gear from O'Neill's International Sportswear and jewellery from Garrett Mallon's Carlingford Design House.
