In different ways, for some matches it doesn’t seem right to hold a MOTM poll. After a bad defeat, for example, but also after a game of games like yesterday’s, in which every single one of our players gave their all.
But the point of the poll remains the same no matter what the game and that’s to identify and salute the players who you think stood tallest for us. So many did so yesterday.
Two players attracted most support in the poll, with Padraig O’Hora – RTÉ’s choice of MOTM – narrowly edging out Lee Keegan, who got the nod from Sky Sports. I’d give it to the both of them but you, the voters, have given it to Swanny. Congrats to him.
As you can see below, the vote was a tight one, with Padraig prevailing with 22% of the vote, just ahead of Lee on 21% and Robbie only a bit behind on 19%. Well done to them too and to all the lads who played their part in the dethroning of the Dubs last night.
