Conor Whelan voted Hurler of the Week

Galway's Conor Whelan has been voted Hurler of the Week.

The Kinvara man received 4,411 votes votes on the GAA's Instagram page ahead of Offaly's Liam Langton (2,139) and Kilkenny's Alan Murphy (1,445).

Conor Whelan (Galway)

Conor Whelan was very much to the fore for Galway as the Tribesmen handed Limerick their first defeat since the 2019 All-Ireland SHC semi-final. The powerful forward scored three points from play and also won a huge amount of ball and used it cleverly.

Liam Langton (Offaly)

Liam Langton was Offaly’s main man as the Faithful County defeated 2020 Joe McDonagh Cup runners-up, Kerry, by 21 points. He scored 1-6 from play and terrorised the Kerry defence with his pace and accuracy.

Alan Murphy (Kilkenny)

Kilkenny were given a fright by Antrim in Nowlan Park, but any jangling nerves were calmed by the metronomic accuracy of Alan Murphy. He scored 13 points, four of them from play, and did most things with a touch of class.

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