Two Donegal hurlers have been honoured for their outstanding performances in the Rackard and Meagher Hurling Championships in 2018.
Setanta’s Declan Coulter and Burt’s Stephen Gillespie, two of the Champion 15 selections, will receive their hurling All-Star prizes as part of the PwC All-Stars event in Dublin’s Convention Centre this Friday evening.
The Nickey Rackard & Lory Meagher Champion 15 has been evenly spread across 11 different counties.
Uachtarán CLG John Horan congratulated the winners and said: “We play a team game but we have always been moved by the exceptional performances that have stood out and contributed to the rich culture of Laochra Gael that we celebrate on an occasion such as this.
“The Rackard and Meagher Cups are dedicated to GAA legends; people who are synonymous with hurling, with its greatness and in their dedication to it.
“I congratulate the Champion 15 selections that have been made. They are all worthy of the prestigious honour that has been bestowed upon them and it’s a great occasion for them, their families and the clubs who helped produce them.”
CEO of the GPA, Paul Flynn, said: “Congratulations to all those who received a hurling All Star Award this year. I would like to commend each and every player for their hard work and commitment throughout the 2018 season and throughout their careers.
“This award truly is one of the most coveted in GAA. Each winner, along with their teammates, have contributed to a thrilling championship. Well done to everyone involved.”Tags:
