*Munster GAA Chairman Ger Ryan presents Eoghan Gunning with his award. 

BROADFORD’s Eoghan Gunning has been named as the Munster GAA minor hurler of the year.

Gunning captained Clare’s minor hurlers to All-Ireland and Munster minor glory in 2023. Lining out at corner back, Eoghan produced some heroic displays with his ability to attack the ball so well in defence and emerge with possession first-time endearing himself to a growing band of Clare supporters.

Two Clare referees were also acknowledged by the provincial council. Niall Quinn, a native of Miltown Malbay was presented with a medal for refereeing the 2022 Munster Junior Club football final while Shannon’s Chris Maguire was awarded a medal for officiating the 2022 Munster Intermediate club football final.

In June, Eoghan was named as the Electric Ireland Minor Star Hurler of the Year and picked up man of the match in the All-Ireland final win over Galway.

Selected alongside Gunning on the Electric Ireland Minor Star Hurling Team of the Year were full back Ronan Keane from Killanena, Sixmilebridge’s Matthew O’Halloran with James Hegarty of Inagh/Kilnamona at centre back. Clonlara’s Michael Collins was chosen at centre-forward with Cratloe teenager Marc O’Brien picked at full-forward.
