Cork captain Graham Canty and Kilkenny kingpin Henry Shefflin have been named as the Opel GPA Players of the Month for August in football and hurling respectively.
The awards mark the outstanding contribution both players made to their county's performances in Championship action last month.
Canty has successfully skippered Cork to the All-Ireland SFC final, showing his leadership skills to their fullest during a powerful display against defending champions Tyrone in the semi-final.
Meanwhile, Shefflin gave a man-of-the-match performance in Kilkenny's semi-final against Waterford - scoring a stunning 1-14 in all.
His finishing skills were again evident last Sunday in the All-Ireland SHC final against Tipperary where Shefflin's late scores helped secure the Cats' fourth title in-a-row.
Chairman of the Opel/GPA Football Selection Committee, Martin McHugh, was not the least bit surprised to see Canty selected by his fellow players.
He said: "If ever there was a Corkman on a mission to win an All-Ireland SFC medal, then it has to be Graham Canty.
"He has been outstanding all summer and has become a real general on the pitch.
"This was particularly apparent in the two games at Croke Park against Donegal and Tyrone, where he led by example and encouraged those around him to take the game to the opposition."
Meanwhile, Donal O'Grady, the man in charge of the hurling prize, commented on how it is not the first award Shefflin has won in his career.
"Accolades may now be common place for Henry Shefflin whose displays are always of the highest standard," said the former Cork manager.
"His team-mates and fellow hurlers are well aware of his extraordinary talent."
