Cork’s Patrick Horgan and Galway’s Shane Walsh have been voted as the PwC GAA/GPA Player of the Month award winners for June.

Horgan helped Cork retain their Munster hurling title, contributing a combined total of 1-16 in their drawn game against Limerick and their come-from-behind win against Waterford.

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.
