The nominations list for this year’s All-Stars was published earlier this morning. We’ve got six on it this year – Colm Boyle, Keith Higgins, Lee Keegan, Aidan and Seamus O’Shea and Cillian O’Connor – and the list features ten different counties. Kerry, as you’d expect, lead the way with eleven, Donegal and Dublin both have nine, Monaghan have four, Armagh have two and there’s one each from Tipperary, Derry, Cork and Galway. The full list, which includes the POTY and YPOTY shortlist, is here.
As I’ve said before, I’m sanguine enough about how many gongs we’ll get when they’re handed out on the 24th of this month. I think two – Keith and Cillian – is all we’ll get, though a strong case could of course be made for at least one more.
Time for a poll on it, I reckon, to see which of our lads you think should be mounting the podium in a few weeks time. I’ve set the poll up so you can vote for your top two choices. That’s not to say we won’t win three (though I’ve already said that I think we won’t) but it should help to illuminate whom from the six nominated are most likely to prevail.
