Laois and Camross hurler Dan Delaney has been voted as the first Electric Ireland Player of the Week for 2019.
The wing forward beat off stiff competition from Kilkenny’s Billy Drennan and Wexford’s Luke Kavanagh.
Dan won 46% of the vote while Billy Drennan came second with 36% and Luke Kavanagh was back in third on 18%.
Laois eased to a comfortable Round 1 win over Westmeath last weekend.
Playing against the wind in the first half, Delaney got the ball rolling for Laois when he scored a great goal after combining well with fellow wing forward James Duggan.
The Camross man would chip in with two more points as Laois ran out 20 point winners in the end.
Laois face Kildare on Saturday in Newbridge in Round 2 – their opponents also enjoyed a big win over Antrim last weekend.
Whoever wins this game will most likely claim top spot in Tier 2 and secure safe passed through to Round 2 of the Leinster championship outright.
