I don’t know how Bernard Brogan has been nominated for an award this year…
Thought Kavanagh didnt do anything special this year for Longford, McCormack can feel hard done by but 3 nominations to a county that lost to Wexford and Limerick? Hardly likely. They’re steeped to have 2.
Bizarre nomination of Frank McGlynn for the half-back line despite playing at corner back all-year. I suspect they want to fit Rory O’Carroll in at corner back because they feel they have to give Dublin and Cork at least one each.
Connolly was better than Brogan this year. Clear case of somebody’s name getting them nominated.
Lacey, McFadden and McGlynn are the three nominees for POTY.
