Cathal Mannion voted Hurler of the Week

Galway’s Cathal Mannion is this Week’s Hurler of the Week.

The fleet-footed midfielder/forward received 3,736 votes from the public ahead of Waterford’s Dessie Hutchinson (2,767) and Clare’s Aidan McCarthy (2,195).

Cathal Mannion (Galway)

Mannion has been in red-hot form all year and continued that trend by inspiring Galway to victory over Cork. He scored 1-2 from play, and drove his team forward time and again with his electric pace and very clever decision-making.

Dessie Hutchinson (Waterford)

Hutchinson was on fire for Waterford in their very impressive win over Tipperary on Sunday. He scored 2-2 from play, and both goals were of the very highest quality. All the more impressive when you consider he was being marked by the ultra-sticky Cathal Barrett.

Aidan McCarthy (Clare)

Clare as a team played very well in victory over Kilkenny, but the performance of McCarthy stood out nonetheless. He hit three points from wing-back, and is the epitome of the modern wing-back who is as comfortable attacking as he is defending.
