I think we’re safe enough declaring the result of this one. Kinda need to as I want to lash up another poll now, this time about who we might pluck from the bowl in the morning.
So, without further ceremony, congrats to Darren Coen who has, with 34% of all votes cast in the poll, been voted our Man of the Match from yesterday evening’s heart-stopping Round 3 qualifier win over Armagh. Hearty well done to him.
Darren wasn’t in the team named in advance for last night’s fixture but it was no surprise when he lined out from the start. The last time he’d played for us in the Championship at MacHale Park was just over a month ago against Roscommon. He put in a MOTM performance in that game too, knocking over five superb points from play.
He was up to the same fun and games yesterday evening, this time landing four points, each one more audacious than the one that went before it. He scored with the left, he scored with the right and his four-point haul went a long way towards securing the narrowest of wins for us.
Others to feature strongly in this poll were the tigerish Colm Boyle (34%), the dashing Fionn McDonagh (15%), super sub Kevin McLoughlin (9%), the ever vigilant David Clarke (6%) and the indomitable Aidan O’Shea (5%). Well done to all of them. Onwards we go to Round 4.
