Our short, sharp and unsuccessful Connacht SFC campaign of 2022 both started and finished at MacHale Park yesterday. We afforded Galway’s Paul Conroy all the space he needed to cause the damage he loves to do to Mayo and he was most people’s choice for Man of the Match from yesterday’s game.
The focus of the poll here on the blog was, though, to identify our strongest performers on the day. On a day when the team as a whole put in a flat performance, it’s no surprise that we can’t point to any real standout players from within our ranks.
This meant there was a bigger spread of voting than would normally be the case in polls of this kind. Seven different players attracted a fair bit of support in the poll, though none of them garnered a significant share of the overall vote.
In the end, Ryan O’Donoghue, on 18%, came out on top, which makes it the fifth time this year he’s been voted our MOTM in polls held here. Well done to him.
Others who featured strongly in the poll on yesterday’s game were James Carr and Lee Keegan (both 14%), as well as Eoghan McLaughlin (10%). Further details on the vote are set out below.
