Galligan picks up player of the month award

Thomas Galligan has deservedly been named the PwC GAA/GPA Player of the Month for November.

Galligan’s outstanding performances helped Cavan win a first Ulster title in 23 years.

Galligan was one of the Breffni County’s heroes as they beat Antrim, Down and Donegal in November, having already knocked out Monaghan on the last day of October, to win The Anglo-Celt Cup for the first time since 1997.

In hurling the Player of the Month Award went to Clare's Tony Kelly.

Feargal O’Rourke, Managing Partner, PwC, gave a "hearty congratulations".

“Thomas helped create a great bit of history with Cavan and we wish him well in the upcoming All-Ireland semi-final."

Uachtarán Cumann Lúthchleas Gael, John Horan observed: "Thomas was outstanding throughout Cavan's campaign in claiming the Ulster Championship for the first time since 1997. We wish him and his team well in their upcoming All-Ireland semi-final.

“Congratulations to both players and my thanks on behalf of the GAA to PwC for their continued support in the promotion of our games.”

Speaking on behalf of the GPA, Chief Executive Paul Flynn added; “November was a busy month in hurling and football full of outstanding displays so it is a testament to Thomas and Tony that their contributions stood out and were recognised by their fellow players as winners of November’s PwC GAA/GPA Player of the Month Awards.”
