Murphy earns Player of the Month plaudit

Michael Murphy 1006The GAA/GPA All-Stars have announce Michael Murphy  as the Opel  Player of the Month for May.

The Donegal Captain put in a sterling Man of the Match performance against Derry, helping the county to clinch a place in the Ulster SFC semi-finals.

His influence in the third quarter of the match was crucial in driving Donegal’s comeback against Derry in the match, earning him the Player of the Month plaudit.

It's not the first time Murphy has picked up the accolade with the Glenswilly clubman last honoured in October 2012 following Donegal's All-Ireland success.

Murphy says he's surprised to get the award.
