The lads are back home in the west with family and friends following yesterday’s latest agonising near-miss with Sam and the votes are in and counted in the final Man of the Match poll of the year here on the site.
We had leaders all over the pitch yesterday but the man chosen by popular acclaim as our MOTM in yesterday’s final was Chris Barrett. His towering, king-of-the-turnover performance at Croke Park earned him 41% of the vote, ahead of Donal Vaughan and Andy Moran (both 11%), Aidan O’Shea (9%), Lee Keegan and Tom Parsons (both 5%).
Well done to Chrissy but also to each and every one of the lads, both for how they played yesterday but also for how they represented their county with such distinction all year.
