Hat-trick hero Lar is GPA Player of Month

Tipperary All Ireland final hat-trick hero Lar Corbett has been named as Opel GPA Hurling Player of the Month for September at the Opel GPA Awards ceremony in Dublin.

Daniel Goulding (Cork) was named Football Player of the Month, whilst Bernard Brogan (Dublin) and Richie Power (Kilkenny) have been named as Opel GPA Players of the Month for August 2010, in football and hurling respectively.

The Awards recognise the outstanding contribution the players made to their county's performances in the Championship during August and September.

Tipperary's Lar Corbett was awarded the Player of the Month for September for his performance against Kilkenny in the All-Ireland Hurling final which saw him score three incredible goals, helping his team to a memorable victory.

Chairman of the Hurling Selection Committee Donal O'Grady said: "The higher the stakes in hurling, the greater the need for leadership on the field and both Lar Corbett and Richie Power took on that responsibility for their counties over the past two months. While Richie rightly takes the plaudits for his contribution in Kilkenny's semi-final win over Cork in August, Lar's brilliant hat-trick in the final in September drove Tipperary to victory in a pulsating game. It is no surprise that they are the choices of their fellow players for those monthly awards and I'd like to congratulate them both."
