Our victory over Dublin at Croke Park yesterday evening was very much a team effort. We had cracking performances in every line and the number of strong performers that we had compared to how many Dublin had in their ranks was key to our success on the night.
One player, though, epitomised our collective resolve last night. He got our first score of the game and he also got our final score, he provided assists for the two goals that went a long way towards winning the game for us and he worked tirelessly from first till last. With 29% support in the poll, Diarmuid O’Connor is, according to you, the voters, our MOTM from yesterday’s game. Well deserved, too.
Others who featured prominently in the poll were Rob Hennelly (19%), who was chosen by RTÉ on the live broadcast as their MOTM, Michael Plunkett (13%), Mattie Ruane (12%) and Oisín Mullin (11%). Well done to them and to all of lads who played a part in the win.
