It’s always a sure-fire way of confirming that it’s one of the less well-established players who has won the Man of the Match award. By this I mean an inability to source a photo of the player in question, in particular one from the relevant match.
So it was this week, hence the team shot above. In it – third from the right sporting his distinctive man bun – is Padraig O’Hora. With 23% share of all votes cast in the poll for our MOTM from last night’s match against Dublin, Padraig is the clear winner. Well done to him.
Despite having only played two full League matches for the county, the tigerish Ballina Stephenites defender has quickly become a favourite among the Mayo fans. It’s easy to see why too, as it’s obvious he’s a hugely committed performer who gives his all in every game.
It’s also clear that this is a player worth watching, one who has every chance of making the first fifteen this summer. More performances like last night’s one against Dublin, not to mention his hugely impressive full League debut up in Ballybofey last weekend, and the likelihood of this happening will increase still further.
Details on how the votes were shared out in the poll are below.
