Last year, despite suffering two shoulder dislocations over the course of the summer, Cillian O’Connor still managed to finish up as the top scorer in the 2014 championship. This year, our newly-minted marquee forward is once more to the fore in the same department, where he currently holds joint-top spot with Tipperary’s Con Sweeney (full details here).
It’s early days yet, of course, but another extended run in the championship for us could well see the talented Ballintubber man follow up his back-to-back Young Footballer of the Year wins with a two-in-a-row in the championship scoring stakes as well. If he does, an overdue All-Star might even be on the agenda this time round but I guess it’s best leave any such talk on hold for now and hope instead that the scores keep coming at the same rate as they’ve done so far this year.
