He scored 3-9 in yesterday’s game, 3-3 of that from play, a haul that appears to be the biggest ever individual score by a Mayo player in a championship game. He overtook Conor Mortimer as the county’s all-time highest scorer and he’s now closing in on the Gooch as the highest championship scorer of all time. It’s no huge surprise, then, that Cillian O’Connor has been voted as our Man of the Match from the Limerick game.
Cillian wins the accolade having captured 54% of the vote. Others to impress were Paddy Durcan (7%), Aidan O’Shea, debutant James Durcan and Chris Barrett (all 5%). Well done to all of them, in particular to our record-breaking captain, who really seemed to enjoy himself at the Gaelic Grounds yesterday evening.
