Sean O’Shea was outstanding for Kerry in their All-Ireland SFC Quarter-Final victory over Meath at Navan on Saturday.
He scored 1-8, 1-3 of which was from play, and was the conduit through which most of Kerry’s most fluid attacking moves were filtered.
His second-half goal was a thing of beauty as he cut in from the right hand side before driving the ball to the roof of the net, and gave Kerry the second-half impetus to pull away from a dogged Meath team.
Patrick Durcan returned to the Mayo line-up for Saturday’s crucial All-Ireland SFC quarter-final victory over Donegal after missing the games against Kerry and Meath with a leg injury.
He was given the onerous task of marking Donegal’s in-form play-maker, Ryan McHugh, and carried out the role brilliantly.
Not only did he successful limit McHugh’s influence on the game, he also scored three cracking points from play himself.
Sean Bugler made a very positive impression for Dublin in their All-Ireland SFC Quarter-Final victory over Tyrone on Sunday.
It was his first Championship start, but he was in no way fazed by the occasion and ran confidently at the Tyrone defence every time he had possession.
He scored three fine points and also provided the assist for Eoghan O’Gara’s late goal with a perfectly weighed fisted pass.
