The GAA/GPA All-Stars sponsored by Opel have Graham Reilly and Richie McCarthy as the Players of the Month for June in football and hurling respectively.

Both selections were chosen by the inter-county playing body, presented in recognition of the players’ outstanding contributions as both Meath and Limerick claimed provincial final spots.

An inspirational performance by Reilly saw the Royal County overcome Wicklow in the Leinster Championship quarter-final on 15 June and the St Colmcille’s ace was again the architect of his county's victory over Wexford in the semi-final to set up a clash with their old rivals Dublin at Croke Park next Sunday.

McCarthy delivered a man-of-the-match display for Limerick in their stunning victory last month over Tipperary to book a place in the Munster final against Cork

The dynamic full-back was pivotal in overcoming the favourites that day and he will line out in his first senior provincial decider against at the Gaelic Grounds on Sunday next.
