Carlow's Paul Broderick and Clare's John Conlon have been named as the PwC GAA/GPA Player of the Month award winners for the month of May.

Broderick was sensational in Carlow's shock Leinster SFC victory over Kildare, a victory which set up a semi-final clash with neighbours Laois this Sunday.

The corner forward finished that game with a total of 0-11 points, 9 of those coming from placed balls, but also managed to impress from open play.

Conlon starred in Clare’s Munster SHC victory over Waterford. He was a constant threat to the Waterford defence and finished the game with a total of 1-3 scored, as well as winning a vital penalty in the opening half while the game was in the balance.

The Clonlara man will be hoping he can keep up that form against Tipperary on Sunday.  

GAA president John Horan paid tribute to the duo said: "Congratulations to our Player of the Month winners for May and best of luck to both of them in the days and weeks ahead with games that will determine how long their respective summer campaigns unfold.

"John has been a driving force in Clare’s bright start to the Munster championship. While they were pipped in their opener against Cork, he was very much to the fore in the win over Waterford that followed and he is an undoubted leader in this Clare team.

"Paul and Carlow have built on last year’s exploits with a strong league showing and a great start to the championship that has delivered wins over both Louth and Kildare to date. His scoring prowess has been central to these successes, something that has been acknowledged by his peers through this award.
