Kilkenny hurler Eoin Larkin and Tyrone footballer Sean Cavanagh have been announced today as the Opel Gaelic Players of the Month award winners for September.
Larkin, the 23-year-old forward, was in inspirational form during Kilkenny's successful All-Ireland campaign.
He scored 1-4 in the Cats' final victory over Waterford earlier this month, which gave Brian Cody's men the much-coveted three-in-a-row.
Larkin, a very deserving winner of the GPA gong, hails from the James Stephens club and is a soldier in the Irish Army.
Last week he was nominated for a position on the 2008 All-Star team and last night he was shortlisted for the Hurler of the Year award.
Meanwhile, midfielder-turned-full-forward Cavanagh was arguably the heartbeat of the Tyrone side this season.
The Moy clubman landed five points from play in the Red Hands' All-Ireland final triumph over defending champions Kerry, winning the man-of-the-match award in the process.
Cavanagh was this week named as the Ireland captain for next month's International Rules Series against Australia.
The 25-year-old accountant is also in the running to win his fourth All-Star award and to be named Footballer of the Year.
