The winners GAA-GPA Hurler and Footballer of The Month Award for August have been unveiled.
Despite suffering agonising defeats for Mayo and Tipperary in their respective All Ireland Semi Finals, both Lee Keegan and Seamus Callanan have been named as August’s Footballer and Hurler of the month.
Lee Keegan scored 1-02 in a man of the match display for Mayo against Donegal at the beginning of August, and was instrumental to Mayo’s cause as they fought back from a seven point deficit to earn a replay against Dublin.
After his exploits against Galway, Seamus Callanan was unquestionably August’s stand out hurler. The Tipperary forward scored 3-09 against the Tribesmen in an epic individual performance. Despite his best efforts, Callanan was unable to lead the Premier County to the All Ireland Final.
