Five Minutes With…Galway’s Conor Whelan

We challenged Conor to our quick fire round of questions!

At only 21, Galway’s Conor Whelan already has an All-Ireland title and two Leinster Championship titles under his belt. His talent was noticeable from a young age, and was called up to the Galway senior panel when he was only 18. Last year, he won the All-Star for Young Hurler of the Year, and has been nominated for another All-Star this year.

We sat down with Conor and challenged him to our quick fire round of questions to get to know more about the hurler behind the helmet!
