Lee Keegan voted GAA.ie Footballer of the Week
The public has voted Mayo’s Lee Keegan the GAA.ie Footballer of the Week!
The Westport man received 8,826 votes on the GAA’s official Instagram page which put him ahead of Tyrone duo Niall Morgan (7,512), and Darren McCurry (7,184)
One of Mayo football’s great servants, Keegan was rose to the occasion yet again on Saturday. He defended tigerishly, and was very effective on the front foot too, scoring a fine point.
Tyrone’s goalkeeper played a pivotal role in their All-Ireland Final win. His restarts were excellent, most particularly the one that led to Tyrone’s second goal, and his ball-handling and ability to launch counter-attacks was special too.
The Edendork sharpshooter had a hugely effective All-Ireland Final. He scored 1-4, 1-2 of which was from play, and won a number of big frees.
Players of the Week are decided based on votes cast by followers of the Official GAA Instagram page.
