Aaron Gillane tops the pole as your 2023 Hurler of the Year | Results

No surprising who was the resounding winner in our public vote for this year’s standout hurler.

He may have missed out on the Sunday Game award but there is no doubting who the Limerick people think is the 2023 Hurler of the Year and that is Aaron Gillane.

In a vote that registered over 1,200 replies, Gillane was the outstanding candidate, garnering 56.7% of the votes.

He is also the heavy favourite with the bookies after a stellar season.

Kyle Hayes was the man to claim the Sunday Game Hurler of the Year nod and he is second in the list, the only other man to reach double figures in terms of percentage of votes at 16%. Hayes was an ever present at wing back in winning a fifth All-Ireland title at just 25 years of age.

Last year’s winner, Diarmaid Byrnes garnered 7% of the vote, just ahead of Tom Morrissey (6.1%) and Darragh O’Donovan (5.7%).

William O’Donoghue, Nickie Quaid and Dan Morrissey complete the first eight which is all Limerick with Eoin Cody (Kilkenny) and Shane O’Donnell rounding out the top ten.
