Limerick trio nominated for PwC / GPA Player of the Month for All-Ireland Finals

The trio were all named from the start in last month’s All-Ireland final as Limerick made history as only the third county to win four on the trot.

Limerick trio Diarmaid Byrnes, Cian Lynch and Kyle Hayes have been nominated for the PwC/GPA Player of the Month – Finals award, following their fantastic performances to drive Limerick to a fourth Liam MacCarthy cup in a row.

The trio were all named from the start in last month’s All-Ireland final and combined for 0-11 as Limerick made history as only the third county to win four on the trot.

Lynch, who missed the Munster final through injury, came back to captain his side to semi-final and final victories, chipping in with a pair of points in the decider. He became the first Patrickswell man to lift the Liam MacCarthy and was subsequently named the player of the month following the Croke Park performances.

His club mate Byrnes had a tremendous year, and was one of Limerick’s most consistent performers, landing 0-8 from wing-back in the All-Ireland final to conclude the contest as the games top scorer. Byrnes is the reigning hurler of the year and will win a fourth successive All-Star later this year.

Back at wing back, Hayes was a pillar of strength for Limerick all year but arguably had his best game in the final where he got on the scoresheet with an excellent effort off the wing. He was then named the Sunday Game Hurler of the Year.

The winner will be revealed by PwC in the coming days.
