GAA.ie Hurler of the Week
1: Conor Johnston (Antrim) - 863 (49%)
2: John McGrath (Tipperary) - 605 (35%)
3: Conor Cooney (Galway) - 287 (16%)
Conor Johnston starred during Antrim's Ulster SHC Final win against Armagh.
Johnston struck 3-5 from play for the Saffrons, who dominated throughout in Owenbeg.
A brilliant Johnston goal approaching half-time decorated an excellent opening period display.
It was a similar story for Antrim after the restart with Johnston adding two more majors for the Saffrons, who face Carlow in the Christy Ring Cup this weekend.
The McGrath brothers were instrumental in Tipperary's success over Wexford at Nowlan Park.
John McGrath continues to impress for the Premier County, demonstrating his classy finishing ability, registering 2-2.
With Seamus Callanan expected to be sidelined for next weekend's decider against Galway, Tipperary will be looking to McGrath to supplying the scores inside once more.
Conor Cooney has been ravaged by injuries in recent years, but the St Thomas' clubman is enjoying a productive stint for Galway.
At the Gaelic Grounds Galway controlled most of their game against Limerick with Cooney, Conor Whelan, and Cathal Mannion in excellent form.
Cooney ended the contest with a 1-4 haul including a brilliant goal which captured why the 24 year-old is so highly rated.
Thanks to all who voted for Conor.
