Adrian Mullen voted GAA.ie Hurler of the Week:
The public has voted Kilkenny’s Adrian Mullen this week’s GAA.ie Hurler of the Week.
The Kilkenny midfielder received 2,578 votes on the GAA’s official Instagram page which put him ahead of Tipperary’s Gearoid O’Connor (2,319), and Limerick’s Donnacha Ó Dálaigh.
Adrian Mullen (Kilkenny)
Mullen is one of the classiest hurlers in the game and showed all of his skill and striking ability in Kilkenny’s win over Cork on Saturday night. He scored five points from play and got on a huge amount of ball in what was a very influential performance.
Gearoid O’Connor (Tipperary)
Gearoid O’Connor seems to get better with every game he plays for Tipperary and he was excellent in their win over Galway on Sunday. He scored 1-13, four points of which came from play, and showed his confidence by stitching an injury-time penalty that settled the contest.
Donnacha Ó Dálaigh (Limerick)
Limerick as a team weren’t at their fluent best in Sunday’s win over Westmeath, but Ó Dálaigh produced a sparkling individual performance. He scored 1-4 from play including the goal that settled the game in Limerick’s favour.
