Thomas Francis Meagher and Michael 'Brick' Walsh have made it through to the semi-final stage of the Waterford All Time Greats, a series of polls aimed at finding the county's greatest ever person.

Waterford's Thomas Francis Meagher was an Irish nationalist and leader of the Young Irelanders in the Rebellion of 1848. After being convicted of sedition, he was first sentenced to death, but received transportation for life to Tasmania.

He overcame magician Keith Barry in the quarter-final stage while Brick Walsh beat suffragette Marguerite Moore.

Michael 'Brick' Walsh is a hurler of a generation, defining the grit of the Déise throughout the early 2000s. He commenced his 17th season with the Waterford hurlers. 

He has been a spiritual leader of the team for almost two decades, picking up three Munster titles, two national league titles and four All-Star awards.

Two great leaders, one from the world of politics, and one from sport, Meagher and Walsh will now be vying for your votes until semi-final voting closes at 11pm on Thursday, February 14.
