Tom Morrissey included in three-man Hurler of the Month Shortlist

Morrissey was arguably Limerick’s best performer in the defeat to Clare, clipping over four points as his efforts came up just short against the Banner.

Limerick’s Tom Morrissey has been nominated for the PwC GAA/GPA Player of the Month Award for April. The Ahane native helped Limerick to an opening round win over Waterford as their 17-match unbeaten streak was then ended by Clare.

He is joined in the shortlist by Tipperary’s Jake Morris and Clare’s John Conlon.

Morrissey kicked off his championship campaign with a pair of points in the Deise victory in Thurles. He was then arguably Limerick’s best performer in the defeat to Clare, clipping over four points as his efforts came up just short against the Banner.

John Conlon was named man of the match in that win for Clare while Jake Morris picked up the same award in Tipp’s win over Clare in the first round as he bagged a hat trick of goals.

Last year, Diarmaid Byrnes collected the Hurler of the Month gong before going on to claim the Hurler of the Year award at the season’s end. Gearoid Hegarty was named the player of the month for July/August following his All-Ireland final performance.

The PwC GAA/GPA Player of the Month Awards, which form part of the PwC All-Stars, and the PwC GPA Women’s Player of the Month Awards take place during the championship seasons. They recognise and profile outstanding performances by players across all codes—hurling, camogie, men’s football and ladies’ football.
