GALWAY GAA: Seven Hurlers Make Galway Daily Team

Voting concluded on Wednesday (12th September) for the 2018 Galway Daily Senior Hurling Team of the Year and followers opted to keep seven Tribesmen players in their starting 15. 

Padraic Mannion, Daithi Burke, Aidan Harte and Gearoid McInerney were named in the defence; David Burke took a midfield position; while Joe Canning and Conor Whelan took their places in the front six.

The overall breakdown was Galway (7), Limerick (5), Clare (2) and Kilkenny (1).

The All-Ireland champions have Declan Hannon and Sean Finn in defence, Cian Lynch in midfield, with Aaron Gillane and Kyle Hayes in attack.

Clare also have two attackers named Peter Duggan and John Conlon named.  And Kilkenny’s Eoin Murphy took the goalkeeping slot.

Some of those unfortunate to miss out included James Skehill (Galway), Darragh Fitzgibbon (Cork), Jonathan Glynn (Galway) and Joseph Cooney (Galway).

Ahascragh/Fohenagh’s Padraic Mannion topped the final poll with 84%, followed by Murphy 74%, Daithi Burke (68%) and Canning (64%).

As stated, we picked the positions based on the 15 players you selected which involves a couple of positional switches but this is our team.  The final poll results are available underneath.
