GAA JOE Team of the weekend

Niall McIntyre

There were sensational performances all over the country this weekend.

You had Eddie Gibbons saving the day and the double for Kilmacud Crokes in Dublin. You had Sean Mullooly darting up the field in Roscommon and you had Cian McConville nailing the shots in Armagh.

This is The GAA JOE Team of the weekend.

1 Eddie Gibbons (Kilmacud Crokes)

His brilliant save from Sean Baxter was the winning of the Dublin senior hurling final.

2 Paul Flanagan (Ballyea)

Held the rampant Shane O’Donnell scoreless in the Clare SHC final.

3 Sean Mullooly (Strokestown)

Set the tone for his club with his powerful runs out of defence in the Roscommon SFC final.

4 Conor Corcoran (Moycullen)

Had the unenviable task of detailing the in-form Barry McHugh, and he kept him relatively quiet.

5 Cathal Mulholland (Glen)

Scored the goal that broke the Slaughtneil resistance in the Derry SFC final.

6 Niall O’Meara (Kilruane McDonaghs)

Set up Jerome Cahill’s goal with a brilliant pass, and then came to life when his team needed him, with two huge points late on to seal the draw.

7 Paddy O’Sullivan (Portarlington)

O’Sullivan has some engine, and he used it good effect when tearing up the field for his late, match-winning goal against Castletown in the Leinster SFC.

8 Tholom Guiry (The Nire)

Dominated midfield in the Nire’s Waterford SFC semi-final win over Ballinacourty.

9 Aidan Walsh (Cork)

Excelled for Kanturk in their Premier Intermediate championship win in Cork, the stalwart scoring 1-1 including a tremendous goal.

10 Donal Burke (Na Fianna)

Burke was imperious in the Dublin senior hurling final, and didn’t deserve to lose that game. Hit 0-11, 0-5 from play from all sorts of ranges and angles. He’s quickly become one of the best finishers in hurling.

11 Sean Kelly (Moycullen)

Can play full back, but he was centre forward here. And he destroyed Mountbellew-Moylough in the Galway SFC semi-final with his direct running from 11.

12 Jerome Cahill (Kilruane McDonaghs)

Cahill scored two goals of the highest quality, at crucial times, to keep the Magpies in the Tipperary senior hurling final.

13 Cian McConville (Crossmaglen Rangers)

Only a matter of time before this man makes a mark on the county scene. He dazzled with 0-8, half of them from play in Cross’ win over Granemore.

14 Conor Crowley (Palatine)

Crowley was his club’s main man in their county campaign, and he took that form into Leinster with 1-3 against Wicklow’s St Patrick’s.

15 Conor Murray (Rathgormack)

The Waterford football captain was the difference in the county SFC semi-final against Gaultier with 2-2 from play in the second half.
