After a super display in this year’s EirGrid GAA U21 Connacht Championship, Galway U21 captain, Michael Daly has been named as the EirGrid GAA U21 Player of the Province for Connacht. 

Hailing from An Creagan/Mach Locha club, Michael landed this award for the role he played in securing Galway’s first U21 Connacht title since 2013.

The Tribesmen disposed of both Leitrim (QF) and 2016 All-Ireland champions, Mayo (SF) on their way to the final where they faced Sligo, a team that had yet to claim a provincial title at this level. Michael gave an outstanding display on Sligo home turf in Markievicz Park, and it was this performance that helped drive the team on to secure a win over Galway (3-20 to 2-14) in extra time.

This is the first year of the EirGrid GAA U21 Player of the Province initiative and it is one that has been put in place to recognise and reward outstanding performances throughout each of the four provinces at U21 level. Each recipient has been carefully selected by the Gaelic Writers Association.  

Director of External Affairs at EirGrid, Rosemary Steen, commented;

“I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to Michael on winning this award. His performance for Galway in the Connacht championship has been fantastic and we are delighted to be able to recognise him for this.

“At EirGrid, we manage and develop Ireland’s electricity grid and we feel strongly that our business mirrors this U21 Championship. We need to ensure that there is a bright future ahead for the young people of Ireland and with the incredible talent on display in this competition with players like Michael involved, we have no doubt that the future of the GAA will be extremely bright”.

Dublin’s Aaron Byrne has been selected as the EirGrid GAA U21 Player of the Province for Leinster and in Munster, Kerry’s, Andrew Barry has been chosen. The Ulster representative will be chosen after the final on Monday, 10th April. 

Dublin will play the winner of Donegal and Derry in the EirGrid GAA U21 Football All Ireland Semi-Final on the 15th April at 14:30. The venue for the game is still to be confirmed.
