10 counties have representatives on our football team of the week…


1. Matt Doyle (Wexford)

The Model County’s number one denied Louth’s Jim McEneaney from the penalty spot on his championship debut and also pulled off a couple of fine saves.

2. Niall Daly (Roscommon)

Daly and his Roscommon team-mates showed no mercy to Division 4 finalists Leitrim at Dr Hyde Park.

3. Cillian Brennan (Clare)

The Banner County survived a scare against Waterford and will now face Kerry in the last four of the Munster SFC.

4. Michael Cassidy (Tyrone)

The Ardboe clubman marked his championship debut with two points in the hard-earned win over Derry.

5. Tadhg O hUallachain (Waterford)

The Deise came close to securing a first Munster SFC win since 2010 and O hUallachain was one of their most effective performers.

6. Iain Corbett (Limerick)

Despite finishing second from bottom in Division 4, Corbett (who scored 1-2) and his Limerick team-mates pulled off the shock of the weekend against Tipperary.
7. Chrissy McKaigue (Derry)

The Oak Leafers pushed arch rivals Tyrone all the way in Omagh and McKaigue was one of their standout performers.

8. Kevin Feely (Kildare)

Despite Feely dominating on kick-outs, the Lilywhites didn’t make life easy for themselves against Wicklow.

9. Shane Killoran (Roscommon)

Midfielder Killoran netted two of the Rossies’ three goals in the comfortable win over Leitrim.

10. Cillian Fahy (Limerick)

Fahy shared the scoring honours with Corbett on a day to remember for Treaty County football.

11. Eoin Cleary (Clare)

The accurate Cleary sent over six points (three from play) in the Banner County’s minimum margin victory over Waterford.

12. Bryan McMahon (Meath)

With their backs very much against the wall on home soil, McMahon came to Meath’s rescue with a 63rd minute goal.

13. Andy McDonnell (Louth)

McDonnell and the Wee County produced a barnstorming finish against Wexford to set up a quarter-final date with Dublin. 

14. Cathal McShane (Tyrone)

The Tyrone target man created plenty of headaches for Brendan Rogers and finished with 0-7 (five from play) to his name.

15. Jamie Lee (Limerick)

Corner-forward Lee sent over four points (three from play) in the impressive seven-point success over Tipperary.
