Marren and Maher land awards

Sligo footballer Adrian Marren and Tipperary hurler Patrick Maher have been named as the GAA/GPA All-Stars Players of the Month for June.

Marren was the star of the show as Sligo staged a second half recovery to stun Galway at Pearse Stadium in the Connacht SFC semi-final, scoring a sensational 2-6 to inspire his side to a 2-14 to 0-15 victory and a place in Sunday's decider against Mayo.

Maher played a key role in Tipperary's victory over Cork in the Munster SHC semi-final. His powerful running and probing of the Cork defence proved critical to Tipp's success.
