Walsh was a key member of the Galway team that won the Connacht football title.

He scored five points in their semi-final win against Sligo before going on to notch 0-8 in a man-of-the-match performance against Roscommon in the Connacht final.

The pair were at PwC’s Cork office this morning to pick up their awards from Munster council Chairman Jerry O’Sullivan, GPA National Executive Member Noel Connors and PwC Partner Ger O’Mahoney.
