Eight All-Star nominations for Clare hurlers

Car Tourismo Banner

Clare’s run to an epic Munster final and to the All-Ireland semi-finals is reflected in a haul of eight nominees for the PwC All-Star Hurling awards of 2022.

The Banner county has four defenders nominated in the shape of Ballyea’s Paul Flanagan, John Conlon of Clonlara, Cratloe’s Diarmuid Ryan and David McInerney of Tulla.

Inagh Kilnamona’s David Fitzgerald and Clooney Quin’s Ryan Taylor are nominated in the midfield.

While in the forward line Tony Kelly of Ballyea and Shane O’Donnell of Eire Og are in line for awards.

Dating back to 1971, the All-Stars are selected by a team of GAA journalists from across print, radio, digital, tv and broadcast media. There will be two additional hurling selections honoured to cover outstanding players in the Joe McDonagh Cup and a Champion 15 from across the Ring, Rackard and Meagher Cup campaigns.

The PwC All-Stars will be presented at a black-tie banquet in Dublin’s Convention Centre on Friday, October 28 shown live on RTE tv. The hurling team will be announced live on the night with the football team being released publicly 24 hours earlier.
