GALWAY GAA: 2018 Galway Daily Senior Hurler Semi-Finals


The opening round of our 2018 Galway Daily Senior Hurler of the Year competition closed last night (Monday) as the 16 contenders were whittled down to nine players. 

Daithi Burke topped the poll with 90% followed by Padraic Mannion (50%), Conor Whelan (43%) and David Burke (41%).

The top two from each of the four groups advanced to the next round along with the best third placed player (Adrian Tuohey – 22%).

Some of those unfortunate to be eliminated included Jonathan Glynn, John Hanbury, Joseph Cooney and James Skehill.

The semi-finalists will take part today (Tuesday) with three groups containing three players each.  The winners from each group will qualify for Wednesday’s final along with the best runner-up.

Any ties will be decided by our adjudication panel.  All you need to do is log into (and like) our twitter page and like your favourite player in each section each day.  It’s that simple.  Each poll will last for 15 hours.
