We’re still in transit, with another flight to come shortly before we get home later on tonight. But I’m currently connected to the internet and have a beer at my elbow so I may as well close the book on the Man of the Match poll from yesterday’s stirring win over Donegal.
A few of you have said – with some validity – that a MOTM poll is moot on this occasion, given that yesterday’s performance by the lads was the epitome of a team display. It was that and more and this is reflected in the wide spread of votes cast in the poll.
That said, every match produces standout performances. Yesterday evening’s display by team captain Paddy Durcan, who utterly nullified Donegal’s dangerman Ryan McHugh while still finding time to scamper forward and bag three points, was little short of exceptional. With 31% of all votes cast he’s the richly deserving recipient of the MOTM award from yesterday’s game.
Well done to Paddy and to all the lads who gave absolutely everything for the cause in yesterday evening’s enthralling win.
