THEY may have missed out on All Ireland honours but there was some consolation for Donegal footballer Michael Murphy and Cork hurler Patrick Horgan when they were named PwC GAA/GPA Player of the Month award winners for July.

Murphy was instrumental as Donegal battled through to the Super 8 series where they bowed out only after a thrilling defeat to Mayo in Castlebar.

Meanwhile, Horgan struck 3-10 in a sensational display against Kilkenny in the All-Ireland quarter-final but Cork fell badly short, slumping to a six-point defeat. 

The Cats will play old rivals Tipperary in the All Ireland Hurling final later this month.

The All Ireland football semi-finals will see Mayo and Dublin lock horns this Saturday evening before Tyrone and Kerry meet less than 24 hours later.

Both games will be played at Croke Park.
