SHANE O’DONNELL has been named the PwC GAA/GPA Hurler of the Month for April.

Since making his first appearance of the year when coming on as a half-time substitute in Clare’s Allianz National Hurling League final win over Kilkenny, Shane O’Donnell has made an immediate impact in the Clare attack.

He scored 0-1 and was a constant threat in Clare’s opening round provincial loss to Limerick while he hit 1-1 as Brian Lohan’s side bounced back to defeat Cork in the second round tie in Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

Éire Óg’s Shane will be part of the Clare forward line this weekend as they look to record successive victories in the Munster championship when facing off with Davy Fitzgerald’s Waterford.

Armagh’s Lauren McConville, Tipperary captain Karen Kennedy and Donegal wing back Ryan McHugh won the awards for ladies football, camogie and gaelic football respectively.

The PwC GPA Women’s Player of the Month and PwC GAA/GPA Players of the Month Award winners are voted for by the GPA’s membership.
