With the five-in-a-row secured, it’s no surprise that All-Ireland champions Dublin dominate the PwC All-Star Football Team of the Year for 2019.

All-Ireland runners up Kerry have four players in the team while there are two from Tyrone and one each from Mayo and Donegal.

Stephen Cluxton is named in goals, winning his first All-Star since 2013.

All-Ireland finalists dominate the full-back line with Kerry’s Tom O’Sullivan and Mick Fitzsimons joined by Ronan McNamee of Tyrone.

The All-Ireland champions dominate the half-back line with Jack McCaffrey winning his fourth All-Star and the former Footballer of the Year is joined by his teammate Brian Howard in the centre-back position. The final half-back position went to Mayo’s Paddy Durcan who becomes the first Castlebar Mitchels man to win an All-Star.

Last year’s Footballer of the Year Brian Fenton is named alongside David Moran in midfield following another stellar year.

Jim Gavin’s men are represented by Paul Mannion in the half-forward line and the All-Ireland winner is joined by Kerry’s young star Seán O’Shea and Donegal’s stalwart Michael Murphy at centre-forward and wing-forward respectively.

Last year’s Young Footballer of the Year David Clifford is named at corner-forward, winning his second All-Star, while Tyrone’s Cathal McShane and Footballer of the Year nominee Con O’Callaghan complete the team.
