Kerry’s Seán O’Shea and Limerick’s Aaron Gillane have won the PwC GAA/GPA Player of the Month Awards for April.

O’Shea finished the Allianz Football League as top scorer in Division 1 and was a key factor as Kerry reached the final where they came unstuck against Mayo. 

In total the 20-year old Kenmare student registered 1-50 over the course of the campaign including five points from placed balls in the decider.

Gillane was instrumental as Limerick won a first top flight league title since 1997.He finished as Man of the Match in the final against Waterford notching up 1-09 in the process with 1-05 of that coming from open play. 

Munster Council Chairman Liam Lenihan said: "Congratulations to our Player of the Month winners for April 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.

"Seán has had an exceptional career to date for Kerry for a player so young and I’m sure we’ll be hearing and seeing much more about him throughout the summer.

"I’m delighted to see my fellow county man Aaron pick up the hurling award. He was a key reason Limerick added league honours to last year’s All-Ireland glory.

"Congratulations to both players and my thanks on behalf of the GAA to Ger and the PwC team for hosting today’s event and all they do in the promotion of our games."
