It was a proud night for Douglas as Katrina Mackey claimed her fourth All Star award at a banquet held in the City West hotel on Saturday night.
Katrina was named at right wing forward for her excellent performances during the year for Cork and played a huge part in Cork reclaiming their All Ireland title following an epic battle against rivals Kilkenny.
Mackey raised a white flag in the one point victory over the defending All Ireland champions to add to the two points she scored in the semi-final in a three point victory over Galway. Although important, her scoring exploits are only one part of her game, and a non-stop work rate is accompanied with some incredible intelligent play, regardless of whether she lines up in the corner or at wing forward.
For the first time ever the Camogie All Stars will now go on a trip abroad to play a game in Madrid where they will face their 2016 counterparts. Given that Katrina’s twin sister Pam was an All Star in 2016 it has set up the intriguing possibility that the talented sisters could end up marking each other at some point in the show piece.
On behalf of everyone in associated with any code for Douglas GAA, we would like to wish Katrina the heartiest congratulations on an incredible achievement.

"It’s an unbelievable feeling" said White afterwards. "I’ve had a frustrating year in terms of injuries and so on, so I was delighted to have the option of getting on and getting a point.
"I know it was only one point and there were loads more, but it’s definitely a great feeling after being out for the last two years."
Douglas legend Teddy O'Donovan was part of the backroom team and huge credit must go to him for the part he played in the victory.
The Cork intermediates, featuring Douglas duo Rebecca Sheehan and Sarah Fahy will have to do it all over again as they drew a hard fought battle with Meath. We wish the girls, the very best of luck in the replay.
