No doubt she was deeply disappointed by the loss in last Sunday's Lidl Ladies NFL Division 4 Final but there was some consolation for Leitrim's Michelle Guckian who topped the scoring charts for the entire League in the 2021 campaign.
The Kiltubrid woman scored a remarkable 4-31 in just five games, averaging over 8.6 points a game, as she finished 14 points clear of her nearest rival in Division 4 with a total of 43 points, Louth's Lauren Boyle who scored 5-14 for a total of 29 points. Offaly's Grainne Egan rounded out the top three with a tally of 4-16 (28).

In fact, Michelle's tally saw her top the charts across all four divisions with Dublin's Hannah Tyrell topping the Division 1 with 3-29, Kerry's Louise Ni Mhuircheartaigh scoring 5-22 in Division 2 while 6-21 was enough to see Mo Nerney of Laois top in Division 3.
