GALWAY GAA: Padraic Mannion – Senior Hurler of the Year

Padraic Mannion

Ahascragh/Fohenagh’s Padraic Mannion was selected the 2018 Galway Daily Senior Hurler of the Year following the three rounds of twitter polling that took place this week (August 20th – 22nd). 

The 25-year-old has been consistent in the maroon and white jersey all year and was one of Galway’s players to deliver another top-drawer performance in the All-Ireland Final despite the loss to Limerick.

Whether it’s Mannion or leading from the front, Mannion has delivered consistent displays all season and not just named by the Sunday Game panelists in their ‘Team of the Year,’ he was also their unanimous choice as ‘Player of the Year.’

The wing back topped the poll with 42% of the vote ahead of Portumna’s Joe Canning (35%), Turloughmore’s Daithi Burke (35%) and St. Thomas’ David Burke (5%).
