CONOR McShea’s performances for Fermanagh in their run to the Lory Meagher Cup final have been recognised by his inclusion in the GAA/GPA Champion 15 selection.

The athletic McShea was selected at right half back in the team, which includes the best hurlers from the 2020 Christy Ring, Nickey Rackard, and Lory Meagher Cups.

Fermanagh manager Moe Baldwin was delighted with McShea’s selection, and says he doesn’t have to look far to see where his talent comes from.

“It is a very well deserved award for Conor, and a fantastic achievement for him and his family.

“The apple didn’t fall far from the tree – Conor’s father, Ollie, is part of the management team and everybody knows his credentials; he was a fantastic hurler and a fantastic sportsman, and Conor is in the same mould.

“Conor McShea is the fittest – in terms of stamina and running – that I have been involved with, and the boys that play with him in Fermanagh would agree with that.

“He is just phenomenal; he is up and down non-stop,” said Baldwin, who says it is pleasing to see a Fermanagh man named on such a high-quality team.


“It is fantastic that Fermanagh hurling is recognised at that level, and to see a Fermanagh hurler named in a team along with Offaly hurlers, that is great.

“It is something that the rest of the boys should look at and say that they can push on too and get individual awards like this,” he added.

And Baldwin believes there is more to come from McShea.

“The thing is that there is still so much more in Conor McShea – he is still evolving, as are many other of the Fermanagh lads.

“I’m delighted for him.”
