The pair picked up the PWC GAA-GPA monthly awards after they led their respective counties to provincial titles last month.

Walsh scored 0-8 in the Tribe’s Connacht final victory over Roscommon, while Horgan’s 11-point haul helped the Rebels to success in the Munster decider against Clare.

The Glen Rovers ace contributed 1-42 during Cork’s provincial campaign and is the sixth highest scorer in the All-Ireland SHC. John Meyler’s side take on Limerick in Croke Park in the All-Ireland semi-final on Sunday week.

Kilkerrin-Clonberne attacker Walsh chipped in with 0-16 during Galway’s Connacht-winning campaign where they defeated Mayo, Sligo and Roscommon.

He added a further five points last weekend during their win over Kerry in the Super 8s opener.
