Clare’s Colm Galvin has tonight been named U21 Hurler of the Year at Bord Gáis Energy Team of the Year Awards ceremony.

The midfielder was also among seven  members of the Clare championship winning team selected on the Team of the Year.

Four players who were named in the inaugural Team of the Year in 2013 have again been picked for their contributions this season. Clare’s Seadna Morey is selected on the full-back line this year having been chosen at wing-back last year. His fellow county man Colm Galvin retains a spot at midfield while another Banner man, Tony Kelly, gets the nod at centre forward having been picked on the wing in 2013. Tipperary’s Jason Forde is the other player to get chosen for the second time. He gets the number thirteen jersey having been selected at full-forward twelve months ago.

Meanwhile, Clare Under 21 joint managers Gerry O’Connor  and Donal Moloney received a merit award for guiding the Banner to a third successive All Ireland U21 title.
