As well as football, also proficient at athletics, basketball, pitch and putt and more. Talented referee and regular supporter of all Rockie teams. Today younger Rockies are familiar with Dell through her stewardship of our annual club summer camp.

We wish you the happiest of Birthday’s Dell from everyone in Austin Stacks GAA Club.

Dell herself won 5 Senior County Championship Medals with Austin Stacks (77, 79, 82, 89, 93), captaining the side to win the 1977 Championship against Castleisland. She had even greater success with Kerry – winning 7 Senior All Ireland Medals (76, 82, 85, 86, 87, 89, 90), captaining Kerry to win the 1990 All Ireland final against Laois. She also has seven National League Medals, nine Munster Senior Medals and four All Star Awards (1982, 85, 86, 87).
