ON AN AFTERNOON of outstanding Tipperary performances, one stood head and shoulders above the rest.

And tonight at Dublin’s Burlington Hotel, full-forward Seamus Callanan was named as the All-Ireland final man of the match.

The Drom & Inch sharpshooter finished with a remarkable 13 points, nine of which came from play, as Tipp ran out nine-point winners against Kilkenny in Croke Park.

With more than 4,500 votes cast on The42 since full time, Callanan had received 69% at the time of writing.

John ‘Bubbles’ O’Dwyer and Ronan Maher were the other Tipperary players shortlisted by the Sunday Game panel of Eddie Brennan, Cyril Farrell and Brendan Cummins.
