Six-in-a-row All-Ireland Senior Football Champions Dublin have dominated the PWC All-Stars Gaelic football selection for 2020.

Nine Dublin players have been rewarded with an All-Star for their efforts last year, a record-equalling number not achieved since the 1977 Dubs side.

Cavan have also made history after winning the Ulster football championship for the first time in 23 years with three All-Stars selections, outstripping their total tally of two from the 50 previous years of the awards.

Elsewhere, two Mayo players have been selected on the All-Stars team while Tipperary captain Conor Sweeney has also gotten the nod.

There are seven previous All-Star winners in the side, with Dublin’s Brian Fenton leading the way in total selections, having collected his fifth All-Star at the age of 27.

The PWC hurling All Stars will be announced this Saturday in an awards ceremony programme shown on RTE, where the GAA/GPA Player and Young Player of the Year will also be announced in both football and hurling.

Paul Flynn, the CEO of the GPA and winner of four All-Stars himself, congratulated all players who won awards as well as all those who were nominated for All Stars.

“I know what a great honour it is to be selected as a PwC All-Star and all 15 players should be very proud of their achievements.

“Individually they were the best of the best in 2020. I also want to congratulate all the nominees who were shortlisted.”
