It was an exciting weekend of Gaelic Football action as Kerry, Galway, Tipperary, and Westmeath won the Divisions 1, 2, 3, and 4 League Finals respectively.

This week's nominees for GAA.ie Footballer of the Week are Kerry's David Moran, Tipperary's Conor Sweeney, and Galway's Paul Conroy.

Footballer of the Week nominations

David Moran (Kerry)

David Moran has arguably been in the form of his life so far this year and he was immense again on Sunday as Kerry defeated Dublin in the Allianz Football League Division 1 Final.

He scored two inspirational points from play, and was the beating heart of Kerry's performance thanks to his ability to win hard ball in the middle third of the field and use it wisely.

His new midfield partnership with Jack Barry looks like a really formidable one, which bodes well for Kerry's championship prospects.

Conor Sweeney (Tipperary)

Tipperary played some sparkling attacking football in their Allianz Football League Division 3 Final victory over Louth on Saturday, and most of it revolved around corner-forward Conor Sweeney.

The Ballyporeen man has a potent mix of physicality and languid skill which makes him a terrifying prospect for opposition defenders because he can make the most of whatever sort of ball comes his way.

Louth certainly couldn't handle his threat as Sweeeny finished with a personal tally of 2-5, 2-2 of which was from play, in a man of the match performance.

Paul Conroy (Galway)

The Allianz Football League Division 2 Final ebbed and flowed as both Galway and Kildare enjoyed periods of dominance, but Galway midfielder Paul Conroy was the most consistent influence throughout the contest.

He drove Galway forward with his ability to run hard and fast at defences, and gave his team the sort of defence-turning threat that Kildare simply didn't have.

He capped a fine individual performance with two inspirational points from play as Galway were crowned Allianz Division 2 champions.
