The PWC GAA-GPA scheme saw Gillane and O’Shea chosen as the individual stars with the April award rewarding their displays throughout the Allianz leagues.

Gillane was part of the Limerick squad that delivered the county’s first hurling league title since 1997, shooting 1-9 in their victory in that final over Waterford in Croke Park. That scoring return brought his tally to 2-45 from the spring campaign.

O’Shea did not taste success in their league decider against Mayo, notching 0-5 as Kerry fell short in the football showdown in Croke Park. There was no disputing O’Shea’s status as Kerry’s main man throughout the league though, he finished with 1-55 to his credit as proof of his scoring capabilities for the Kingdom.
