Donegal footballer Michael Langan has been named on the Electric Ireland Higher Education Rising Stars team of 2019.

Sigerson Cup winners UCC top the hours list with six  on the team; St Mary’s, Belfast are next with four, NUI Galway and UCD  have two each and Letterkenny IT one.

Kerry star Sean O’Shea, UCC was named the player of the year.
