GAA.ie Footballer of the Week nominations

Tyrone defeated Donegal to reach another Ulster SFC Final, where the Red Hands will play the winners of Down and Monaghan.

Kildare proved too good against Andy McEntee’s Meath to set up a Leinster Final date with either Dublin or Westmeath, who beat Offaly in a Quarter-Final replay on Saturday.

Roscommon overcame Leitrim and will now face Galway in a Connacht decider, while four games in the All-Ireland qualifiers were decided over the weekend too.

The GAA.ie Footballer of the Week nominees for this week are Daniel Flynn (Kildare), Niall Sludden (Tyrone) and John Heslin (Westmeath).

The voting process is simple: retweet the image of your chosen player on the GAA's official Twitter account (@officialgaa) or like their image on the GAA's official Facebook and Instagram pages. Voting will close at 10am on Tuesday, June 20 and the winner will be announced on GAA.ie.

Daniel Flynn (Kildare)

Daniel Flynn produced another great performance at full-forward for the Lilywhites on Saturday evening as Cian O’Neill’s men ran out nine-point winners.

Both counties entered following two excellent Quarter-Final results and were evenly poised heading into the weekend, but Flynn’s substantial contribution had a major say in the way this game went.

Following up from his 1-2 against Laois, Flynn bagged a further 1-4 in this year’s Championship against the Royals.

Niall Sludden (Tyrone)

Tyrone’s performance against Donegal was one the best all round team displays in the Championship so far, and Niall Sludden was a standout player for Mickey Harte’s men.

Known for his versatility, Sludden showcased his energy levels when breaking from defence to attack.

Sludden demonstrated his scoring capabilities too scoring four points from play as Tyrone become the first team to book their place in the 2017 Ulster Final.

John Heslin (Westmeath)

Westmeath’s John Heslin proved once again why he is one of the most effective forwards in Gaelic football after another brilliant display against Offaly.

Offaly limited Heslin to just one point from play last week, but there was no stopping the Westmeath sharpshooter this time out.

Heslin finished with a tally of 1-6 with just two of them scores coming from placed balls, as the Lake County advanced to a provincial Semi-Final against Dublin next weekend.
