Two Clare nominees for All-Stars

Two Clare players are among the 45 nominees from which the camogie All-Stars team will be chosen in the coming weeks.
Chloë Morey is included in the nine nominees, from which the half-back line will be chosen, while Clare captain Deirdre Murphy is nominated for a midfield position.
The Sixmilebridge teenager was named as the inaugural Gala Performance award winner last month
Chloe won the award for her performance against Limerick in the senior championship, which was voted the best performance of the season by the public.The award was presented by Denise Lorde of Gala and Camogie president Joan O’Flynn
The Gala Performance Award was introduced this year to recognise the most outstanding individual performance during the course of the Gala All-Ireland Senior Championship.
Chloë was presented with her award at the annual camogie post All-Ireland final reception a few weeks back, making it a really memorable day for the Morey family as her brother, Caimin, helped Clare to an historic first All-Ireland U-21 title.
Clooney-Quin’s Deirdre Murphy, the Munster development officer, was also nominated for an award last year after leading Clare to the All-Ireland junior title.
Cork dominate the list with 12 nominations, one more than beaten finalists, Kilkenny. The winners will be announced at a gala banquet at the Citywest Hotel in Dublin on November 7.
Cork’s Gemma O’Connor is in line for a sixth consecutive All-Star while 18-year-old Katrina Parrock is chasing a first award following an exceptional season with Wexford
In all, nine counties are represented.
Commenting on the announcement, Joan O’Flynn, president of Cumann Camógaíochta na nGael said, “This year’s Gala All-Ireland senior and intermediate championships have been of very high quality. The championship season produced exciting games, close finishes and great skill, with Cork and Galway respectively claiming the senior and intermediate titles”.
