See article below from Hoganstand, super achievement and so well deserved, hadn't his best day against Meath, but was excellent up to that and I'm confident we'll see him at his best again in semi!!



Player of the month awards for Browne and Callaghan
04 August 2010


Waterford's Tony Browne and Kildare's Eamonn Callaghan are Vodafone sponsored July GAA Player of the Month winners

One of hurling's brightest stars over the last two decades and a star of this year's football championship were today honoured as Tony Browne and Eamonn Callaghan, respectively, picked up the July GAA Player of the Month awards, sponsored by Vodafone.



For former Hurler of the Year All Star Tony Browne the award is recognition for his immense displays in Waterford's drawn and replayed Munster Final which gave the inspirational Mount Sion clubman his fourth provincial title. Browne (37) can be credited with keeping Waterford's hopes alive in the drawn game as his injury time goal sent the game to a replay - a game marked yet again by an outstanding display from the ageless three-time All Star.

Browne has already written his name into Waterford hurling folklore on many occasions over the last nineteen years since his debut for the Decies against Galway in the National Hurling League in 1991 and is this year the oldest and yet one of the most influential players involved in the All-Ireland championship.

Eamonn Callaghan also laid down a marker as one of football's leading players with his performances in July. The Naas clubman has this year shown his versatility, not least in July when he was chosen at centre back against Leitrim and scored one point from play before giving a man of the match performance as he chalked up 1-4 from play from wing forward against Derry in the next round of the qualifiers.

O'Callaghan capitalised again on Saturday week last as he was one of Kildare's stars in their impressive victory over Monaghan, lining out as a roving corner forward and ending up with 0-2 from play. That led the Lillywhites into last weekend's All-Ireland quarter-final clash with Meath, which they were so impressive in and qualified them for an All-Ireland semi-final showdown with Down.

Congratulating the July Player of the Month award winners, GAA Ard Stiúrthóir Páraic Ó Dufaigh said: "It's an honour to be here today to jointly present the awards to two of the stars of the 2010 season. Tony Browne has decorated the GAA calendar with so many outstanding performances over the years and this year, at the ripe age of 37, is going as well as ever. It is great also to see Eamonn Callaghan getting recognition for his outstanding season and he, and indeed Kildare generally, have been a breath of fresh air in the 2010 championship, as we saw again in last weekend's outstanding display."

On behalf of sponsors Vodafone, Fixed Services Director Eileen Maher, who jointly presented the awards with GAA Ard Stiúrthóir Páraic Ó Dufaigh, said: "This is the business end of the season, when the championship heats up and players reach their peak. Today's award winners have certainly shown they are on top form and we are delighted to be able to honour both Eamonn and Tony, who have lit up the football and hurling championships with brilliant performances in July."

the only way this week could get better is if the Newpapers ran these headlines:

Kildare Native fionnmccool wins Biggest ever Euro millions Jackpot of €200 million Euro

or

Kieren McGeeney agrees to have fionnmccools babies in a new radical scientific experiment.

Leper's uncle played hurling for Limerick and his father played in goal for Naas so as they say he didn't lick it off the ground.

Congratulations to Leper on this award.

Given the fact that Kildare had so many games in July there was a good chance of a Kildare winner. I think James Kavanagh must have been close.
Also, as the Meath game was on the first of August - Kavanagh must have a good chance of winning that after his display on Sunday and if he can do well in the semis.

I think a special mention has to go to Eoin Flats - what an amazing impact he has had in the last two games. So composed on the ball and a real natural forward for kicking points. Huge bonus that he is also able to kick 45s. Didn't realise that before Sunday!

EAMONN CALLAGHAN has admitted that the long road to recovery from persistent hip and groin problems forced him to contemplate the possibility of never donning the Kildare jersey again.

The 27-year-old Garda has been one of the stars in the Lilywhites’ qualifier odyssey and the injuries are, thankfully, a distant memory.

But it took him some time to find his form when he did eventually return to training last March, after developing the problem that forced him out of last year’s Leinster final.

“Sometimes I thought I might never play for Kildare again,” said Callaghan. “I worked very hard this year to get back into the team.

“It was a pretty serious injury and I was wondering whether I’d get back at all.

“Thankfully, with the lads we have, the two physios and Julie (Davis), who does a lot of rehab work with us, I got back into good shape again.”

The Naas man avoided going under the knife and hasn’t missed a training session since returning to the fold. He has always been a versatile player, lining out in almost every position for Kildare since making his championship debut as a sub in the 2003 Leinster final.

Even at that stage, Dermot Earley was a major player for the county and he is the current team’s spiritual leader on the pitch, along with Johnny Doyle.

Earley is facing a race against time to be fit for the semi-final, but Callaghan insists Kildare will cope.

“Dermot is huge for us on and off the pitch. The thing is, in Kildare we have a very strong squad.

“Obviously, he would be a huge loss for us and hopefully he will be back, but we are fairly confident we do have lads to come in to fill the gap if needed.”

nobody mentioned anything about tony browne winning the hurling award!leper will do well if he achieves half as much as tony browne in his playing career! leper will have another 10 years of playing intercounty if he stays around as long as browne has so he might have time on his side!

Nobody mentioned Tony Browne because he plays hurling for Waterford, what has he got to do with Kildare football.

I fact what the hell are you on about comparing leper to Tony Browne.

Amazing to think leper's career was in doubt and now he's doing what he's doing... but then he doesn't have to look far for inspiration - a big many called Earley, for whom setbacks are just a turn-on
