Donegal hurler Davin Flynn was last night named on the Nicky Rackard Cup Champion 15 for 2017.
Flynn was presented with his award at the PwC GAA/GPA All-Stars banquet at the Convention Centre in Dublin.
Flynn, a native of Roscrea in Tipperary, was in splendid form for Donegal this year.
He scored 2-8 in an Allianz League Division 3A win over Tyrone in March and he repeated the trick in the Division 3A final, scoring 2-8 again against Tyrone.
Flynn also starred in Donegal’s Nicky Rackard Cup win over Armagh, but it was disappointment for Donegal as they bowed out following defeats to Tyrone and Monaghan.
Derry were impressive winners of the Nicky Rackard Cup final against Armagh at Croke Park and it was no surprise to see them with five representatives.
GAA President Aogan Ó Fearghail said: “These teams take great pride in striving for success in these competitions and it is fitting that we acknowledge and celebrate the players who were the stand our performers.
“I know only too well that the competition and commitment to excellence in the Ring, Rackard and Meagher Cups is every bit as intense as it is in the hunt for the Liam MacCarthy Cup.
“So, congratulations to all of those who have been selected winners in the PwC Champion 15s for 2017.”
