GALWAY GET SIX ALL-STARS THIS YEAR

Iarla Tannion in action v Kilkenny
Beaten All-Ireland finalists Galway topped the hurling All-Star list with six players chosen on the team, while Kilkenny's Henry Shefflin was named Hurler of the Year.

Champions Kilkenny had five representatives on the XV selected, while Waterford (2), Clare (1) and Cork (1) were also represented.
Shefflin was named Hurler of the Year as the mercurial forward won his ninth Liam MacCarthy Cup this summer and was named on the elite team for an eleventh time.

Galway’s Johnny Coen received the Young Hurler of the Year award after flourishing for the Tribesmen on their run to the All-Ireland final.

Just reward for a new Galway team that beat, drew and finally lost to Kilkenny in the All-Ireland replay
