With the inter-county season now behind us it’s time to consider who was the Mayo GAA Blog Player of the Year for 2021.
Past winners of this award – chosen by you – are Cillian O’Connor (twice), Diarmuid O’Connor, Lee Keegan, Andy Moran and Colm Boyle.
To compile the shortlist for the Player of the Year award I use the same method every year, which is to aggregate up the votes from the individual Man of the Match polls. This year data from the four League matches we played and the five Championship fixtures we contested were used. As was the case in past years, weights were applied to the raw data to reflect the greater importance of big Championship clashes.
The shortlist tends to vary in length from year to year – moving between three and five – and this year the close grouping of four players at the top of list makes that the logical number to use this year. So, then, four it is.
In alphabetical order, the four nominees for the 2021 Mayo GAA Blog Player of the Year award are Lee Keegan, Ryan O’Donoghue, Padraig O’Hora and Mattie Ruane.
The poll is now open and you can cast your vote below. I’ll leave the poll up for a week or so and announce the winner after that. Congrats to all four players shortlisted and the best of luck to them in the vote.
