Club heroes named joint winners of October WLR Granville Hotel GAA Award

Kieran Bennett and Conor Murray have been named as joint winners of the October WLR Granville Hotel GAA Award.

Ballysaggart midfielder Bennett is the third Bennett brother to claim this accolade followingin the footsteps of siblings Shane and Stephen.

He struck nine points from play in the Western final win over Ardmore and added four in the county final against Ballygunner as the blue and navy earned promotion to the senior ranks.

Bennett shared the October accolade with Conor Murray, who played a major role in Rathgormack winning their first County Senior football title since 1999.

Ger Power’s charges narrowly lost out to away to Clare champions Miltown Malbay in the quarter final.

Waterford county-star Murray said the county final win will “live long in the memory” and said the club learned a lot during their incredible campaign and can build on this in the years to come.
