ALL-IRELAND CHAMPIONS LIMERICK have seven players on The Sunday Game’s Hurling Team of the Year, with three for runners-up Galway.

Beaten semi-finalists Cork and Clare both have two players apiece, while Kilkenny goalkeeper Eoin Murphy is the only representative from a county outside this year’s final four.

The team was selected by a panel of seven RTÉ pundits: Brendan Cummins, Anthony Daly, Cyril Farrell, Jackie Tyrrell, Donal O’Grady, Eddie Brennan and Ken McGrath.

In addition, the seven pundits unanimously endorsed Galway’s Padraic Mannion as their Hurler of the Year.
