Denise Gaule had a Senior Camogie All-Ireland Championship to remember as she inspired the Cats to the summit of camogie for the first time since 2016. Gaule was in inspirational form throughout and finished off with 3-37 from five Championship games including a decisive winner in the All-Ireland final. Gaule was a constant threat for Kilkenny upfront and was their number one set-piece taker be it from long-range or short-range.
Prior to 2020, Kilkenny had previously made the last six of the seven finals winning just the one. Gaule was at the forefront of Kilkenny’s bid to banish the ghosts of past seasons and exhibited incredible skill and leadership to secure the O’Duffy Cup.
In an almighty clash in the the All-Ireland semi-final against Cork, Gaule was at the centre of Kilkenny’s extraordinary comeback which helped seal a place in the final.
In a repeat of last year’s final against Galway, Gaule scored the decisive goal to make Kilkenny 2020 All-Ireland champions. Brilliant at set-pieces throughout the whole campaign, Gaule struck a superb penalty into the bottom corner to seal proceedings – exhibiting incredible technique and nerves of steel.
