Tipperary’s Noel McGrath and Dublin’s Con O’Callaghan have been named the hurling and Gaelic football Players of the Month respectively for their championship performances in August.

McGrath was named man of the match on The Sunday Game for his display against Kilkenny in last weekend's All Ireland final.

The Loughmore-Castleiney man showed skill, composure and vision in midfield to orchestrate Tipperary’s dominance over their fierce rivals and win his third All-Ireland title.

Two goals by Con O’Callaghan in 37th and 46th minutes of a sustained and clinical attacking performance from Dublin in the All-Ireland semi-final all but ended Mayo’s championship hopes and kept Dublin’s drive for five alive.
