Footballer of the Week nominations

Gearoid McKiernan - Cavan

Gearoid McKiernan is a man in top form because this is the second week in a row he's been a GAA Footballer of the Week nominee.

The big midfielder produced a powerhouse performance for Cavan in their highly impressive Allianz Football League Division 1 victory away to Mayo.

He scored a total of 1-5, 1-2 of which came from play, and was influential throughout thanks to his ball-winning ability and desire to run at a Mayo defence that never managed to tame him.

Paul Broderick - Carlow

Carlow forward Paul Broderick regularly racks up big scores and he was at it again on Saturday evening as he inspired their Allianz Football League Division 4 victory over Waterford.

He scored a whopping 2-6, 2-2 of which came from play and was the main difference between the teams.

Broderick has it all - power, pace, clinical finishing and free-taking - and is the sort of player that would excel on any stage.

Ryan McHugh - Donegal

Ryan McHugh has excelled so far in this year's League campaign for Donegal but Saturday's display against Tyrone was his best yet.

It was a miserably wet night and the pitch was heavy and sodden, but McHugh seemed to glide across it as he tortured the Tyrone defence with his incredible speed, brilliant decision-making, and clinical finishing.

He scored two classy points from play but they were merely the cherries on top of an all-action display that showcased why he's now one of the most complete footballers in the country.
