ALL-IRELAND CHAMPIONS Limerick, unsurprisingly, lead the way in The Sunday Game team of the year.

And man of the match in yesterday’s impressive All-Ireland SHC final Gearóid Hegarty was named as Player of the Year.

John Kiely’s newly-crowned champions have nine players in the XV with yesterday’s defeated finalists Waterford providing three in Tadhg de Búrca, Jamie Barron and Stephen Bennett. 

Galway’s Daithi Burke is recognised for his season’s work while star forwards Tony Kelly of Clare and Kilkenny’s TJ Reid also get the nod in a reworked formation.
