The semi-finals of our 2018 Galway Daily Minor Hurler of the Year competition closed last night (Tuesday) as the nine contenders were whittled down to the final four.
Ballinasloe’s Shane Jennings topped the poll with 60% followed by Patrick Rabbitte (50%), Diarmuid Kilcommins (48%) and Dean Reilly (43%).
The winners from each group advanced to the final which takes place today (Wednesday) and were joined by the best runner-up (Diarmuid Kilcommins – 48%).
Some of those unfortunate to be eliminated included Sean Neary, Donal O’Shea, Jason O’Donoghue and Evan Duggan.
On Thursday, we will declare the 2018 Galway Daily Minor Hurler of the Year.
