ALL-IRELAND CHAMPIONS TIPPERARY and runners-up Offaly both see four players featured on the 2022 Electric Ireland GAA Minor Star Hurling Team of the Year.

Offaly’s Adam Screeney has been named Player of the Year, the Kilcormac-Killoughey star forward having scored a staggering 5-51 through the Faithful county’s journey to their first minor final since 1989.

A last-gasp Paddy McCormack goal broke Offaly hearts in the Nowlan Park final last month, Tipperary finishing up 1-17 to 1-16 winners.

McCormack is joined by team-mates Sam O’Farrell, Adam Daly and Tom Delaney in the Team of the Year, while James Mahon, Donal Shirley and Dan Ravenhill are the Offaly players named alongside Screeney.

Galway have three representatives — goalkeeper Donagh Fahy, Rory Burke and Aaron Niland — while both Laois and Clare each have two players on this year’s team in Ciarán Flynn and Ben Deegan, and Eoghan Gunning and James Hegarty respectively.

The team was selected by a panel of GAA experts and was determined in part by Electric Ireland’s ‘Minor Moments of the Week’ initiative on Twitter.

The football equivalents will be unveiled on Tuesday, 16 August.
