There were some standout performances across the board as Galway advanced to the hurling decider, while Dublin, Monaghan, Kerry and Tyrone enjoyed victories in football.

Joe Canning took the top honour following Galway’s narrow All-Ireland SHC semi-final replay success against Clare. He posted eight points from wing-f0rward, including four frees and a stunning sideline cut to help Galway to a 1-17 to 2-13 win.

David Clifford landed 2-6 and man-of-the-match honours after their 3-25 to 2-16 win against Kildare in the Super 8s.

The 19-year-old’s big contribution wasn’t enough to prevent Kerry from crashing out in the All-Ireland SFC quarter-final series, while defender Dermot Malone scooped the award as Monaghan beat Galway by 0-16 to 0-8 to make it through at the Kingdom’s expense.

Eoghan O’Gara took advantage of a rare Dublin start by posting 2-2 as they beat Roscommon by 4-24 to 2-16. O’Gara was named man-of-the-match, as was Mattie Donnelly following Tyrone’s impressive win over Donegal.

Donnelly clipped over two points for Mickey Harte’s side and was a driving force in the middle third during the 2-17 to 1-13 win over Donegal.

Colm Cavanagh and Padraig Hampsey were also nominated on the Sunday Game last night, but Donnelly got the nod.
