It was an easy decision for the GAA to pick which hurler to feature in their “Great Plays” clip this week.
Cian Lynch made his Championship debut in style last weekend - crucial to Limerick’s single point win over neighbours Clare in the Munster SHC quarter-final.

Lynch, nephew of Ciaran Carey and last year’s Limerick minor captain, scored three points from play and was RTE’s Man of the Match.
It is easy to see why RTE chose the 19-year-old for the award - he turned the Clare defence inside out on a regular basis throughout the game.
We marked Lynch out as one to watch earlier this year, great to him proving us right.
