GAA.ie Footballer of the Week
1: Andy Moran (Mayo) - 7,000 votes
2: Ciaran Kilkenny (Dublin) - 4, 811 votes
3: Niall Sludden (Tyrone) - 2, 513 votes
Mayo travelled to Newbridge aware that a win needed to be registered so unsurprisingly Andy Moran obliged with a classy forward display.
Moran nailed three critical points for the Green and Red, who proved too strong for a struggling Kildare team at St Conleth's Park.
Ciaran Kilkenny remains an influential player for Dublin and the Castleknock clubman struck 1-3 against Kerry at Croke Park on Sunday.
Kilkenny's ability to stitch the play together is well documented, but this spring Kilkenny has delivered important scores for the All Ireland champions.
*Niall Sludden's *value to the Tyrone cause was evident on Saturday night at Healy Park when the Red Hands secured a much needed win against Donegal.
Sludden contributed 1-1 and repeatedly drove at the heart of the Donegal defence as Mickey Harte's outfit carved out a valuable victory.
