RESULTS | Tom Morrissey tops the poll in fan vote for Limerick Player of the Championship so far

The poll received close to 2000 votes, with Tom Morrissey coming out on top, following a string of impressive displays this year.

Limerick fans have been voting online for their Player of the Championship so far this year, and the poll received close to 2000 votes, with Tom Morrissey coming out on top, following a string of impressive displays this year.

The Ahane man won by a landslide, receiving 57.3% of the votes, picking up 1087 in total. Morrissey has been a massive scoring presence for John Kiely’s side this year, notching up 0-12 across four games, an average of three points per game. While Limerick may have struggled in certain games this year, Morrissey has kept his performances consistent, and is a huge reason Limerick find themselves in yet another Munster final this Sunday.

Diarmaid Byrnes came in second in the vote, with the Patrickswell man receiving 8.9% of the vote. Byrnes has been another key figure in Limerick’s journey to the Munster final, and he recently broke the scoring record for a defender in the championship.

Byrnes has been a leader from half-back for Kiely’s men, and shot 1-4 against Cork in the TUS Gaelic Grounds to break the record, and send his team to the final.

The top three is rounded out by William O’Donoghue, who received 8.1% of the vote, falling just short of Byrnes in second place. O’Donoghue has been an ever present in the Limerick midfield alongside Darragh O’Donovan who picked up the fifth most votes. Seamus Flanagan was 4th in the list of votes.

Limerick lock horns with Clare in the final of the Munster SHC on Sunday at 1:45pm, and will be hoping Morrissey and co can continue in the same vein as they bid for a fifth Munster Championship title in a row.
