The Sligo Champion - - SPORT -

TWO Sligo hurlers have been se­lected on the Lory Meagher/Nicky Rackard Cham­pion 15.

Easkey/St. Far­nans’ James Weir and Cool­era/Strand­hill’s Gary Cad­den have been se­lected fol­low­ing their im­pres­sive per­for­mances for Sligo dur­ing their Lory Meagher cam­paign, which they won this year for the first time when they beat Lan­cashire 4-15 to 2-20 at Croke Park.

These Cham­pion 15 se­lec­tions will see the win­ners re­ceive their prizes as part of the PwC All-Stars event in Dublin’s Con­ven­tion Cen­tre this Fri­day evening.

Paul Flynn, CEO of the GPA 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.”

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.

“They are all worthy of the pres­ti­gious hon­our that has been be­stowed upon them and it’s a great oc­ca­sion for them.
