Do you agree with the All-Ireland SHC quarter-final man-of-the-match winners?

Limerick’s Dan Morrissey and Clare’s Podge Collins scooped the accolades.

AS THE ALL-IRELAND senior hurling championship hit the business end of proceedings this weekend, there were some standout performances in Cork on Saturday and Thurles on Sunday.

motm hurling Man-of-the-match winners: Dan Morrissey and Podge Collins.

Semple Stadium played host to a thriller between Limerick and Kilkenny, with the Treaty advancing to the semi-final with two points to spare at the death.

The Morrissey brothers from Ahane were immense, making major impacts throughout. Dan was superb in the half-back line, while Tom slotted over four points from play at the other end.

It was the defender who caught the eye of The Sunday Game panelists however, with Dan pipping his brother and Kilkenny’s Eoin Murphy to be named man-of-the match

Meanwhile on Saturday in Páirc Uí Chaoimh, Clare came out on top in the ‘Davy Derby’ and sealed a first return to Croke Park since 2013 with an impressive win over Fitzgerald’s Wexford.

A number of Clare players including Shane O’Donnell, Tony Kelly and John Conlon were on form but it was Cratloe’s Podge Collins who scooped the RTÉ man-of-the-match award as he finished with 0-2.
