Dee moved too Sydney 4 years ago and is a prominent part of the Central Coast Gaa Sydney team ever since. Dee is a stalwart in the Sydney’s side midfield and has made a very good impression on her adopted club illustrated in a glowing tribute on their Facebook page. “Dee has been a prominent part of the Central Coast Gaa Sydney for the past 4 years. A solid figure in mid field, this players exceptional skill, ability and execution at driving the ball over the black spot from any angle is a pleasure to watch.” They continued by stating that her greatest attribute is her coolest under pressure and this is why she is so successful with the club. “Some might say if she was any more laid back she would be horizontal. But it’s this cool, calm and collected demeanour under pressure that has gotten her to the success she enjoys today”.
Dee’s talents don’t just stop with camogie as she is a very capable ladies footballer and has expressed this ability on the field with her new club. “Her capabilities don’t just stop at Camogie, being part of both the Ladies Football and Camogie panel, she is truly all round player that can turn her hand to anything.” Dee performances have being so impressive that she has being the winner of many All Stars awards for her performances in state competitions and was part of the NSW team in the recent state competitions in Wellington. “Dee has been involved in the Camogie here in NSW GAA for the past 4 years.
