Do you agree with the man-of-the-match winners from the weekend's GAA action?
Stars from Kilkenny, Clare, Dublin and Meath took home the awards.

AFTER YET ANOTHER action-packed weekend of GAA across both hurling and football, some of the best were in action and were awarded for their exploits.

Sky Sports’ double bill of action saw Meath wing-back James McEntee awarded man-of-the-match despite his side’s dramatic extra-time loss to Tyrone. TJ Reid scored 0-11 in a commanding performance to help drag Kilkenny to victory over Wexford, picking up the accolade after the match.

RTÉ’s coverage saw the broadcaster analyse Tipperary’s loss to Clare in Thurles in great detail. Clare star Peter Duggan scored two vital points in injury-time to ensure that the Banner progress to the next round of the Championship.

The LIT man was awarded the man-of-the-match award by the Sunday Game’s panel ahead of super-sub Podge Collins and Tipperary’s John McGrath.

In football, the panel analysed Dublin’s commanding win over a 14-man Longford. Jim Gavin’s side never looked in doubt after two first-half goals, coming out 2-25 to 0-12 winners in the Leinster semi-final clash.

Midfielder Brian Fenton picked up the Sunday Game’s man-of-the-match award after scoring four points from play and was described by Pat Spillane as the best all-round player in the country. Michael Dara MacAuley and Dean Rock were also nominated with the Raheny man.
