Limerick’s Cian Lynch and Vikki Wall of Meath have been included on the shortlist for RTÉ Sportsperson of the Year.
Lynch helped inspire Limerick to another All-Ireland senior hurling success this past August as the Treaty men dispatched neighbours Cork, helping them earn an unprecedented 12 All-Star awards yesterday.
Meath football star Vikki Wall is one of six women included on the shortlist after the Dunboyne native helped inspire the Royal ladies to upset the odds this year and land a first All-Ireland senior crown.
She earned the player of the match award in her county’s triumph over Dublin in the final at Croke Park in September, producing a superb performance against the reigning champions for Meath’s inaugural Brendan Martin Cup.
Also nominated on the shortlist for RTÉ Sportsperson of the Year along with Lynch and Wall are Rachael Blackmore, Kellie Harrington, Ellen Keane, Leona Maguire, Jason Smyth and Katie Taylor.Tweet
