Shane O’Neill has scored seven points more than anybody else in this year’s Championship and is a massive 12 points ahead of his nearest Tinryland opponent, Diarmaid Walshe, so looks uncatchable at the top of the chart.

Two other players worthy of a mention are youngster Brandon Kelly, who scored a goal in four of Rathvilly’s five Championship games, and also Aaron Amond, who scored a goal in each of Old Leighlin’s three group games even though they ended up in tomorrow’s relegation final.
