It’s All-Star week, with this year’s GAA/GPA hurling and football teams set to be announced in a few days time.
Ahead of that, earlier on today the 2021 Champion 15 team – comprising players from counties who competed in the Ring, Rackard and Meagher Cups this year – was announced. Our successful Rackard Cup campaign was recognised by the inclusion of three Mayo players on the team. David Kenny at wing-back, Cathal Freeman at midfield and Keith Higgins at corner-forward all made it onto the team. Details of the full team are here.
Keith was a winner on the double today as he was also named as this year’s Rackard Player of the Year. Fully deserved it was too, as the Ballyhaunis man was a driving force in the Mayo team that stormed to Rackard Cup success this summer.
Having given the best years of his inter-county playing career to the footballers, it’s great to see that Keith has more recently been able to contribute so significantly to the hurlers. It’s all the better to see this contribution being recognised in the way that it has.
Congrats to all three lads on their awards today, with an extra special congrats to main man Keith for his double award win.
