Lynch and McGeary named PwC GAA/GPA Players of the Month

Two more exceptional players have been rewarded with Player of the Month awards following their brilliant performances throughout August.

Limerick’s Cian Lynch and Kieran McGeary of Tyrone are named as PwC GAA/GPA Player of the Month award winners for hurling and football respectively.

Cian was man of the match in Limerick’s recent All-Ireland final win over Cork; an outstanding individual display in what was one of the finest team performances of recent times.

Kieran was the stand-out performer as Tyrone edged out Kerry in their All-Ireland semi-final, setting up a final showdown with Mayo this weekend.

Commenting on the announcement, Feargal O’RourkeManaging Partner, PwC, said: “On behalf of all of us at PwC, I would like to extend our congratulations and say a big well done to Cian and Kieran – both of them deserving winners of their Player of the Month award. To be able to perform so well as an individual and also contribute to their team when the stakes are at their highest is a rare skill.”

Uachtarán Cumann Lúthchleas Gael, Larry McCarthy said: “Congratulations to the winners of the PwC GAA GPA Player of the Month awards for August. Cian was outstanding for Limerick as they won back-to-back All-Ireland hurling titles for the first time in their history. Kieran continued his excellent form from the Ulster Championship as Tyrone overcame Kerry after extra time to make it to the All-Ireland Football final”

Speaking on behalf of the GPA, Tom Parsons, CEO added: “Congratulations to our worthy winners in these monthly awards and our thanks to PwC for their continued support of inter-county players. These players put in exceptional performances in August and throughout the year and, while there is still an All-Ireland final to come for Kieran, I do want to particularly recognise Cian for his Man-of-the-Match display in the All-Ireland Hurling Final. These are two exceptionally talented & hard-working players for their teams.”

The PwC GAA/GPA Players of the Month Award winners are voted for by the GPA’s membership.
