KILKENNY’S HENRY SHEFFLIN and Donegal’s Michael Murphy have been awarded the GAA GPA Players of the Month for September.

Both selections, chosen by the inter-county playing body, recognise the pair’s starring roles in their respective All-Ireland final triumphs recently.

Shefflin fired 0-12 when he dragged Kilkenny back into contention in their drawn All-Ireland final against Galway before then notching 0-9 in their 3-22 to 3-11 replay win over the Tribesmen.

That ensured Shefflin claimed his ninth All-Ireland senior medal whereas Murphy was part of a triumphant All-Ireland winning team for the first time when Donegal got the better of Mayo by 2-11 to 0-13.

The Glenswilly man captained the team and set the tone by banging home a terrific early goal before going on to add four further points over the course of the match.
