Football Team of the weekend
From Sigerson games to club games to the O'Byrne Cups of this world, it was a fair weekend of club football.
Here's the team of the weekend.
1 Paddy Flood (Naomh Eanna)
Always looks for the clever kickout and though he wasn't troubled too often by the Spidéal attack, he was ready whenever called upon.
That hat deserves a mention too, quality.

2 Niall O'Sullivan (Maynooth University)
Was solid defensively and ghosted forward for a point in a game where they were very hard to come by.
3 Conor Daly (Roscommon)
Guarded the square safely on a day the Roscommon backs were on top of the Galway forwards.
4 Ian Barrett (Easkey)
Played well for the Sligo club in their victory over Red Hugh's of Donegal in the junior semi-final.
5 Paddy Durcan (Ulster University)
Stepped up again. This time for his college.
Kicked 1-3 when IT Tralee were on top.
6 Jason Gibbons (Maynooth)
The Kildare under-20 centre back from last year was solid as a rock in the heart of their defence in that win over Queen's in the Sigerson Cup first round.
7 Michael Potts (IT Tralee)
Had the unenviable task of picking up Ryan McHugh but he fared well on the Donegal livewire.
8 Joe Maskey (Naomh Eanna, Antrim)
A languid operator in midfield, he knows what to do when he gets on the ball.
Kicked a goal to remember and by the end they were singing his name.

9 Kieran Murphy (Kilcummin, Kerry)
Kicked two points and covered some ground in the Kerry club's semi-final win.
10 Ger Egan (Westmeath)
Kicked 1-4 and tormented the Dublin back line all Friday night.
11 Chris Healy (Two Mile House, Kildare)
Kicked two points and ran all day for the Kildare side who were unlucky to lose out to Kilcummin.
12 Donie Smith (Roscommon)
Was the key man in Roscommon's Connacht FBD League final win with eight points.
13 Mark O'Shea (IT Tralee)
Got more change than many would have expected him to off a daunting Ulster full back line.
14 Padraig Fogarty (Maynooth University)
Pointed the way for Maynooth in a famous win over Queen's University at the Dub.
Scored a few scorchers.

15 Matt Keane (Kilcummin, Kerry)
Whenever they were in dire need of a score, corner forward came up with it for his club.
