The second of two midfielders to make the 15 for 15, as voted by our judging panel, is Clare's Colin Lynch.

If hurling was war, you'd get the sense from watching his performances in the Saffron and Blue that Colin Lynch would be the last man standing.

A regular with the Banner until 2008, when the body gave way, Lissycasey man Lynch, who hurled at club level with Eire Og and Kilmaley, was a powerful presence at centre field.

He often carried Clare when they were finding their way in the post Ger Loughnane era.

There were epic performances - against Tipperary in 1999, against Galway in 2002, when he hit the winning point and won an All Star as Clare unexpectedly reached the Final, only to lose to Kilkenny.

Lynch would be a driving force again as Clare made the last 4 of the All Ireland series in 05 and 06.

A physical player, a ball winner, a machine at times, Colin Lynch was an inspiration to the young Clare supporters that would become inter county players and All Ireland champions in 2013.

Talent is one element, but dedication and fearlessness also make a team.

Congratulations to Seamus Molloy who picked Colin and who has won the county jersey of his choice.

Tomorrow we will reveal the right half forward on the 15 for 15.
