Gearoid Hegarty voted Hurler of the Week

The public has voted Limerick’s Gearoid Hegarty the Hurler of the Week.

The powerful attacker received 10,400 votes on the GAA’s official Instagram page which put him ahead of Limerick team-mate Diarmaid Byrnes (4,344) and Kilkenny’s Huw Lawlor (3,242)

Gearoid Hegarty – Limerick

Gearoid Hegarty had a habit of producing big performances in All-Ireland Finals and did it again on Sunday by scoring 1-5 from play, winning a huge amount of hard ball, and putting in some big hits.

Diarmaid Byrnes – Limerick

Byrnes crowned a superb year with another powerful performance on Sunday. His point from play was outrageously good, he score four more from placed balls, and hoovered up a huge amount of ball.

Huw Lawlor – Kilkenny

Lawlor was an absolute rock in the Kilkenny full-back line. He won his duel with Aaron Gillane and nipped danger in the bud time and again thanks to trademark mixture of athleticism and anticipation.

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