Annaghdown’s Diarmuid Kilcommins was selected the 2018 Galway Daily Minor Hurler of the Year following three rounds of twitter polling that took place this week (August 20th – 22nd).
The Claregalway College student played a significant role in their All-Ireland triumph on Sunday (19th August) as he hit two crucial second half points on the Tribesmen’s way to a 0-21 to 0-14 win over Kilkenny.

Kilcommins has played a key role in Galway’s attack throughout their four-game campaign and was acknowledged by supporters in one of the busiest polls Galway Daily has ever run.
The wing forward topped the poll with 38% of the vote ahead of Ballinasloe’s Shane Jennings (35%), Athenry’s Patrick Rabbitte (21%) and Padraig Pearses’ Dean Reilly (6%).
