Armagh attacker Aimee Mackin has won the Croke Park/LGFA Player of the Month award after shooting the lights out in July.

The 24-year-old was in scintillating form for the Orchard County during their 2021 TG4 All-Ireland SFC Championship campaign, racking up a massive tally of 4-28 from just four outings.

Mackin's incredible haul leaves her out in front in the race for the inaugural ZuCar Golden Boot award, which will be presented to the leading scorer in the 2021 All-Ireland Championship.

In the month of July alone, the Shane O’Neills' star forward collected a combined 3-22 against Monaghan, Cavan and Mayo.

Mackin scored 0-5 against Monaghan, 0-10 in the victory over Cavan, and a terrific 3-7 as Armagh got the better of Mayo.

Armagh bowed out of the All-Ireland Championship at the quarter-final stage against eventual finalists Meath earlier this month, but Mackin still managed to record 1-6.

She was the 2020 Senior Players’ Player of the Year award winner, as voted by her peers, on the back of a stellar season which saw Armagh contest an All-Ireland semi-final against Dublin.

She continued that excellent form into 2021, and Armagh have the chance to claim silverware next Saturday when they take on Donegal in the Ulster Senior Final.
