Jason Forde, who is Tipperary's only nominee for the PwC All Star hurling awards


Jason Forde is the only Tipperary player nominated for a Hurling All Star Award.

John Kiely’s winning team are represented with 15 players on the short-list of 45 names announced by the GAA and the GPA.

As is tradition, the nominations are divided into 3 goalkeepers, 18 defenders, 6 midfielders and 18 forwards.  

The final 15 players that make up the PwC All-Star Hurling team will be announced live on RTÉ television and will be presented with their awards at a gala black-tie banquet in Dublin’s Convention Centre on Friday, November 2nd.
