GALWAY GAA: 2018 Hurling All-Stars – Semi-Finals

Our opening round of the 2018 Galway Daily Hurling All-Stars saw the 64 nominees whittled down to 45 ahead of today’s (Tuesday) semi-finals. 

All 14 Galway contenders qualified from the opening round and will take their place in the field – James Skehill, Daithi Burke, Padraic Mannion, Adrian Tuohey, Johnny Coen, Aidan Harte, John Hanbury, Gearoid McInerney, David Burke, Joe Canning, Conor Whelan, Cathal Mannion, Jonathan Glynn, Joseph Cooney.

Limerick have 13 remaining (having lost two), Clare and Kilkenny have six each, Cork four, while Westmeath and Wexford have one player each left.  Carlow, Donegal, Dublin and Kildare lost their one representative each.

Adjudicators had to make a decision in Group Three of the Forwards section as Tony Kelly (Clare) and Shane Dowling (Limerick) finished in joint second.  They opted to keep Dowling in the competition.

Those unlucky to be eliminated included Gearoid Hegarty (Limerick), Brian Byrne (Kildare), Kelly (Clare) and Conor Lehane (Cork).

The semi-finals will see 15 groups containing three players each across the four categories (one goalkeeper, six defenders, two midfielders, six attackers).  The top two from each group advances to Wednesday’s finals.  All players were seeded based on quarter-final results.

So, join us in deciding our team of the year and we’ll update latest scores/results each day.  All ties will be decided by our adjudication committee and we look forward to seeing what 15 players make the final cut on Thursday (13th September).
