GALWAY GAA: 2018 Galway Daily under 21 Hurler – THE FINAL! 


The semi-finals of our 2018 Galway Daily under 21 Hurler of the Year competition closed last night (Tuesday) as the nine contenders were whittled down to the final four. 

Captain Fintan Burke topped the poll with 73% followed by Sean Loftus (64%), Sean Bleahene (43%) and Thomas Monaghan (39%).

The winners from each group advanced to the final which takes place today (Wednesday).  They are joined by the best runner-up (Monaghan).

Some of those unfortunate to be eliminated included Cianan Fahy, Jack Fitzpatrick, Evan Niland and Kevin Cooney.

On Thursday, we will declare the 2018 Galway Daily under 21 Hurler of the Year.

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.
