Darragh Fitzgibbon voted GAA.ie Hurler of the Week
The public has voted Cork’s Darragh Fitzgibbon the GAA.ie Hurler of the Week.
The fleet-footed midfielder received 6,264 votes on the GAA's official Instagram page which put him ahead of Waterford’s Austin Gleeson (5,075) and Antrim’s Ciaran Clarke (2,628).
Darragh Fitzgibbon (Cork)
Fitzgibbon is having a stormer of a season for Cork and was excellent once again in Saturday’s Allianz Hurling League semi-final win over Kilkenny. The midfielder scored the decisive goal and finished with a personal tally of 1-4 from play.
Austin Gleeson (Waterford)
Austin Gleeson was the star man in Waterford’s impressive dismantling of Wexford in Sunday’s Allianz Hurling League semi-final. He scored 2-3, all bar one point of it from play, and terrorised the Wexford defence with his potent mixture of power and poise.
Ciaran Clarke (Antrim)
Antrim’s Division 1 Relegation Playoff win over Offaly was very much an impressive all-round team performance, but Clarke still stood out. He scored four points from play and his knack for using the ball simply but very effectively was to the fore.
