GALWAY GAA: Diarmuid Kilcommins – Minor Hurler of the Year

Diarmuid Kilcommins

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%).
