LIMERICK FORWARD KYLE Hayes has been named man of the match in today’s All-Ireland hurling final.

Hayes, who finished with four points from play, was instrumental as the Treaty ended their 45-year wait to lift the Liam MacCarthy Cup.

The 20-year-old beat his captain Declan Hannon and Galway star Joe Canning — who scored 1-10 in defeat — to the prize.

“We’re the lucky few,” Hayes said from the Limerick celebration banquet in the Citywest Hotel.

“We’ve made the final step to get over the line.”
