Electric Ireland have announced their 2019 Minor Hurling Team of the Year following the culmination of another exciting year of championship action.
This year’s Electric Ireland Hurling Team of the Year features six players from three time All-Ireland champions Galway, three players from All-Ireland finalists Kilkenny, three players from Limerick, two players from Clare and one player from Wexford.
The team was selected by a panel of GAA experts, including former Waterford Hurling Manager, Derek McGrath and Galway dual-star, Alan Kerins and was fed into in part by Electric Ireland’s ‘Player of the Week’ initiative on Twitter.
The panel will also select an overall Hurling Player of the Year whose name will be announced at the 2019 Electric Ireland GAA Minor Star Awards event.
Speaking on the selection Alan Kerins, Electric Ireland Minor Star Awards Panel Member said;
“Knowing what it means to be part of a Minor team, I am proud to play my part in honouring those currently involved in the competition.
“The Minor Star Awards celebrate these young players’ endeavours, recognising the commitment and dedication required to play Minor to this extremely high level.
“The players have brought pride and joy to their communities through their exploits on the field for their counties.”
