GAA.ie Hurler of the Week nominations
Cathal Mannion, Dessie Hutchinson, and Aidan McCarthy are the three nominees for this week’s GAA.ie Hurler of the Week.
The voting process is simple: like their image on the GAA's official Instagram page.
Voting will close at 10am on Tuesday, June 15, and the winner will be announced on GAA.ie.
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.
Players of the Week are decided based on votes cast by followers of the Official GAA Instagram page.
