FOUR CLARE hurlers have been included in the 2024 Electric Ireland GAA Higher Education Rising Stars Hurling Team of the Year.

Adam Hogan, Diarmuid Ryan, Shane Meehan and Mark Rodgers made the third-level team of the year with Feakle’s Hogan named the Electric Ireland Hurler of the Year.

On the team, Hogan was named at corner back, Ryan at wing back, Meehan at corner forward with Rodgers selected at full forward.

Speaking in Dublin, Mary Immaculate College student Adam expressed his surprise at getting the top accolade. “I’m really shocked, it was a great honour when I heard my name in front of the group of players, like of the fifteen lads it could have been any of them, I was really in shock but it was a great honour for my club and my family especially my family for all the work they have done and it has all paid off I suppose”.

Mary Immaculate College managed by Jamie Wall and coached by Cratloe’s Podge Collins won the Fitzgibbon Cup for the third time, defeating the University of Limerick in the decider.

Hogan’s performance in this game where he managed to curb the influence of UL’s marquee forward, Mark Rodgers from Scariff was central to the win. Indeed Adam’s father, Michael won a Fitzgibbon Cup medal with NIHE Limerick while his grandfather, the late Phelim Murphy was a long-time Galway hurling secretary and selector to Cyril Farrell during their All-Ireland successes.
