Aaron Gillane (Limerick)
Once again Aaron Gillane was the point of the Limerick spear as they defeated Clare to win a fifth Munster title in a row. He finished with a personal scoring tally of 1-11, 1-3 of which came from play.GAA.ie
The Patrickswell man was unplayable from start to finish, tormenting the Clare defence throughout as Limerick made it five Munster titles on the trot, Gillane a key man in each.
And it was his second half goal that really turned the tide as Limerick took the lead for the first time since the opening exchanges. Collecting a bouncing pass from David Reidy, Gillane turned on the afterburners before firing into the net past Eibhear Quilligan.
It continues an exceptional year for the three-time All-Star who also broke moved joint-13th in the all-time scoring charts with his latest tally. So far this year, he has accounted for 1-36 with 1-12 of that coming from play.
