The list of nominees for the 2016 GAA/GPA football All-Stars was announced a short while ago this morning and we’ve got eleven players on it, the same number as Dublin. In addition we’ve also got nominees for the Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year awards.
The awards are divided into goalkeepers, backs, midfielders and forwards. Here’s how we did in each:
Goalkeeper: David Clarke.
Backs: Brendan Harrison, Keith Higgins, Lee Keegan, Colm Boyle, Paddy Durcan, Kevin McLoughlin.
Midfielders: None (a bit harsh, in light of Seamie’s incredible All-Ireland final replay performance).
Forwards: Andy Moran, Aidan O’Shea, Cillian O’Connor, Diarmuid O’Connor.
POTY: Lee Keegan.
YPOTY: Diarmuid O’Connor.
The full list of all nominees is here and the awards will be presented at Dublin’s Convention Centre on 5th November.
Congrats to all on their richly-deserved nominations.
