This was a close one – the Man of the Match poll that’s been running here on the site since soon after full-time in Newry last night turned into a hard-fought tussle between Conor Loftus and Aidan O’Shea. Both performed very strongly for us against Down at Páirc Esler but, with the polls closed and the votes counted, it’s the Crossmolina man who has edged it.
Conor wins the Man of the Match award with 27% of the vote, with Aidan coming in second with 24%. Others to feature strongly in the poll were David Clarke (15%), Lee Keegan (11%) and debutant Fionn McDonagh (9%). Well done to them all.
