The 2021 football All-Star nominations have been announced

2021 all star nominations have been announced.

Tyrone have claimed a record-breaking 15 all star nominations after their incredible All-Ireland senior football final win over Mayo.

The Red Hand were unlikely winners for the Sam Maguire crown as they grappled with a COVID-19 scare in the lead up to their All-Ireland semi-final win against Kerry.

Tyrone pair Kieran McGeary and Conor Meyler have also been nominated for footballer of the year, along with Mayo’s Lee Keegan.
