GAA.ie Hurling Player of the Week nominations

Austin Gleeson - Waterford

Having suffered Allianz Hurling League Final replay heartbreak Waterford were a team on a mission at Semple Stadium on Sunday.

Austin Gleeson decorated the Munster SHC semi-final with a brilliant individual display.

The versatile Gleeson scored six points, including five from play, for the Deise.  

Mount Sion clubman Gleeson remains an influential figure for Derek McGrath's team, who advanced to the provincial decider.

Shane Dooley - Offaly

Following a tough afternoon in Cusack Park, Mullingar a month ago when losing to Westmeath, Offaly's response has been encouraging.

Victories over Carlow, Kerry, and Laois suggest Eamonn Kelly's team are moving in the right direction again.

Shane Dooley's relevance and scores in those three wins shouldn't be underestimated.

On Sunday against Laois Dooley struck frees with trademark accuracy accumulating an important 1-11 haul.

Kenny Feeney - Mayo

* *

It was a dramatic Saturday afternoon at GAA headquarters, but the Green and Red celebrated a stirring success.

Level in the closing stages Mayo remained ice cool under pressure to eke out a Nicky Rackard Cup win.

Kenny Feeney scored 1-9 for JP Coen's developing team, who finished strongly at the Jones Road venue.
