GALWAY GAA: Six Tribesmen Footballers Make Galway Daily Team

Voting concluded on Wednesday (19th September) for the 2018 Galway Daily Senior Football Team of the Year and followers opted to keep six Tribesmen players in their starting 15. 

Sean Kelly and Sean Andy O Ceallaigh were named in defence; Tom Flynn took a midfield position; while Damien Comer, Ian Burke and Shane Walsh took their places in the front six.

The overall breakdown was Galway (6), Dublin (5), Donegal (1), Kerry (1), Monaghan (1) and Tyrone (1).

All-Ireland champions Dublin have Jack McCaffrey and James McCarthy in defence, Brian Fenton in midfield, with Ciaran Kilkenny and Paul Mannion in attack.

Monaghan’s Rory Beggan is named in goal; Eoghan Ban Gallagher (Donegal) and Padraig Hampsey (Tyrone) play in defence; and Kerry’s David Clifford gets a starting forward slot.

Some of those unfortunate to miss out included Stephen Cluxton (Dublin), Eoghan Kerin (Galway), Karl O’Connell (Monaghan) and Tiernan McCann (Tyrone).

Monaghan’s Rory Beggan and Dublin’s Brian Fenton topped the final poll with 77%, followed by McCaffrey (76%) and Walsh (57%),

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.
