It wasn’t just yesterday’s match that was helter-skelter: the Man of the Match poll that’s been up since shortly after the game ended has featured a rip-roaring contest between two of our stand-out performers at MacHale Park. In the end, just a single vote (from a total poll of 557) separated Kevin McLoughlin and Diarmuid O’Connor and when the polls closed it was Kevin who came out on top by that single solitary vote to claim the award with 21% of the vote.
Aside from Diarmuid (who also got 21% of the vote) others who attracted strong support in the poll were Colm Boyle (12%), Keith Higgins (10%), Aidan O’Shea and Barry Moran (both 8%) and Lee Keegan (5%). All of the aforementioned stood tall for us yesterday on a day when leadership was really needed.
Well done to Kevin, Diarmuid and all the lads for the part they played in yesterday’s hard-fought qualifier win.
