The semi-finals of our 2018 Galway Daily Senior Hurler of the Year competition closed last night (Tuesday) as the nine contenders were whittled down to the final four.
Ahascragh/Fohenagh’s Padraic Mannion topped the poll with 97% followed by Joe Canning (83%), Daithi Burke (72%) and David Burke (20%).
The winners from each group advanced to the final which takes place today (Wednesday) and were joined by the best runner-up (David Burke – 20%).
Some of those unfortunate to be eliminated included Conor Whelan, Cathal Mannion, Gearoid McInerney and Johnny Coen.
On Thursday, we will declare the 2018 Galway Daily Senior Hurler of the Year.
