With every successive game he plays for the county, Diarmuid O’Connor moves ever closer to being our main man. Yesterday up in Clones he put in another storming display, notching 1-1 from play and racking up a serious amount of box-to-box mileage.
It comes as no surprise, then, that yesterday’s performance wins him his third successive Man of the Match award. Diarmuid claimed 47% of the votes in this week’s MOTM poll, comfortably ahead of Colm Boyle (17%), Ger Cafferkey (9%) and Robbie Hennelly (7%).
Congrats, again, to Diarmuid on winning this week’s award and congrats too to Colm, Ger, Robbie and indeed to all the other lads who played their part in yesterday’s stirring victory over Monaghan.
