Tommy Walsh wins Hurler of Year award
Kilkenny's Tommy Walsh has been named as this season's Hurler of the Year after helping the Cats to their fourth All-Ireland title in a row.
Walsh had already been named among the 15 All Star winners who picked up their awards at last night's ceremony in Dublin.
He has now won All Stars in three separate positions and had been vying for the Player of the Year award with Tipperary's Lar Corbett and Waterford's John Mullane.
Elsewhere last night, Tipperary midfielder Noel McGrath was named Young Hurler of the Year.
