We need to alter our focus, I know, to Roscommon next Sunday – they’ve named their team, by the way, it’s here – but we’ve still some pescado para freír from yesterday. This is the Man of the Match poll, where when the shutters came down a short while ago, a pleasingly neat 1,000 votes had been cast.
Most of those – 53% of the total – went to Cillian O’Connor, whose barnstorming performance for us yesterday went a very long way towards hauling us over the line. Cillian is an enormously deserved recipient of the MOTM award for yesterday’s match – he also won the award on Sky – and hearty congrats to him for this.
Others who put in enormous shifts for us yesterday were Aidan O’Shea (16% of the vote) and Jason Doherty (10%), as well as Chris Barrett, Brendan Harrison and Andy Moran (who all polled 3% in the vote). Well done to all of them and to everyone who played a part in digging out the win for us at the Gaelic Grounds yesterday.
