1. Aaron Beresford (Ballinacourty)
Three second half frees from the adventurous netminder helped his team to victory.

2. Sean Byrne (Gaultier)
Cut out Kilmac attacks and looked comfortable in possession.

3. David Meehan (The Nire)
Dealt with the high balls into Michael ‘Brick’ Walsh all night.

4. Conor Walsh (Rathgormack)


Made a goal line save from Seamus Fitzgerald. Tangled with Tommy Prendergast on the edge of the square.

5. Dermot Ryan (The Nire)
Landed a trademark point from 45 metres and started the move for Shane O’Meara’s goal.

6. Liam Fennell (Stradbally)
Valiant in defeat. His tackles, blocks and interceptions frustrated the Nire forwards. Battled hard against Conor Gleeson.

7. Tom Barron (The Nire)
Kicked a first half point in front of the bank in Fraher Field. Strong ball carrier.

8. Sean Walsh (The Nire)
Dominated the Stradbally kickout and slotted four points from play. A silky footballer.

9. Conor Prunty (Ballinacourty)


Put Courty on the front foot in the second half and powered forward to shoot a point.

10. Billy Power (Rathgormack)
Six points from play (three in each half) off his reliable right boot. Tracked back to lend a hand in defence.

11. Conor Gleeson (The Nire)

The Nire’s playmaker. So unselfish in possession. Involved in a goal and a point for Shane O’Meara and a point for Tom Barron.

12. Conor Murray (Rathgormack)
Two sublime points from play and a defensive splitting hand pass to create Willie Hahessy’s goal. A joy to watch.

13. Aaron Ryan (The Nire)
Three points from play for the hard working corner forward. Always out in front of his marker.

14. JJ Hutchinson (Gaultier)


Gaultier’s go-to man. 1-10 (1-6) in an exhibition of score taking against Kilmacthomas. Still one of the best club forwards in the county.

15. Jason Curry (Rathgormack)


Six points (four from dead balls and two from play) for Rathgormack’s trusty free taker. A hundred per cent accuracy.
