GAA.ie Footballer of the Week nominees


Derry’s Ethan Doherty, Kildare’s Ben McCormack, and Dublin’s James McCarthy are this week’s nominees for GAA.ie Footballer of the Week. The voting process is simple: like their image on the GAA's official Instagram page.

Voting will close at 12pm on Tuesday, May 17, and the winner will be announced on GAA.ie.

Ethan Doherty – Derry

Doherty seemed to cover every blade of grass in Derry’s impressive Ulster SFC semi-final win over Monaghan. He made an incredible block to deny what would have been an equalising goal for Monaghan, and set up Benny Heron’s crucial second goal.

Ben McCormack – Kildare

McCormack is in the form of his life at the moment and excelled again for Kildare in their Leinster SFC semi-final win over Westmeath. He scored four booming points in the first half and finished with a personal tally of 0-5.

James McCarthy – Dublin

The Dublin captain looked fresh and hungry in his team’s dominant Leinster SFC semi-final win over Meath. He took no prisoners in defence as usual, and drove forward to kick two really fine points.

Players of the Week are decided based on votes cast by followers of the Official GAA Instagram page.
