The Footballer Of The Week As Voted For By You
By PJ Browne Updated

Mayo progressed to their third All-Ireland final of the decade with an underwhelming performance. Still, they'll be playing on the third Sunday of September and don't really care right now about how they beat Tipperary.

The victory came mostly thanks to a purple patch of play towards the end of the first half where Mayo outscored Tipp by nine points.

The best player of the game, as decided by you, was Andy Moran. The Ballaghaderreen was only on the pitch for 50 minutes but a hugely effective 50 minutes they were. He scored four points, all from play. He was certainly Mayo's most influential player, especially in the first half. The evergreen Moran was a constant threat throughout. Moran garnered 38% of the votes in our poll this week.

In second place on 25% was another Mayo veteran - Keith Higgins. The corner-back was crucial in Mayo's first goal. He cut through the Tipp defence following a turnover to set up Jason Doherty who caused the raising of the green flag.

Aidan O'Shea was another effective performer for Mayo, knocking over a single point. He received 19% while Tipp's sole nominee was Conor Sweeney, scorer of three points, who finished on 18%.
