Uachtarán Cumann Lúthchleas Gael, John Horan and GPA Chief Executive Paul Flynn joined PwC Managing Partner Feargal O’Rourke in making today’s presentation.

Martin Reilly starred in Cavan’s first Ulster Championship victory over neighbours Monaghan in 18 years, with his crucial first-half penalty leading the way for Cavan.
