PwC All-Stars 2017 Hurling Nominations

PwC All-Stars 2017 Hurling Nominations

 

GALWAY’S success in winning league, Leinster and All-Ireland titles has been reflected in the final list of nominations in this year’s PwC All-Star awards.

The release today by the GAA and the GPA of the 45 best hurlers of the 2017 season has yielded 14 nominations in total for Micheál Donoghue’s men after a campaign that saw them win a first All-Ireland senior crown since 1988, as well as the Leinster championship, and the Allianz League title.

As is tradition, the nominations are divided into three goalkeepers, 18 defenders, six midfielders and 18 forwards. It has also been agreed to honour all of those nominated with a specially commissioned certificate of achievement.

The final 15 that make up the PwC All-Star Hurling team of 2017 will be presented with their coveted awards at a gala black tie banquet in Dublin’s Convention Centre on Friday, November 3 - an event to be screened live by RTE TV.

Beaten All-Ireland finalists Waterford have received 11 nominations. The remainder of the breakdown is Cork 8, Tipperary 5, Wexford 4, Kilkenny 2 and Clare 1 with the selections having been voted on by a committee made up of GAA media, and chaired by Uachtarán Chumann Luthchleas Gael, Aogán Ó Fearghail.

Also announced today is the short list for this year’s Hurler of the Year and Young Hurler of the Year award.

These overall awards will be voted on exclusively by inter county players and they will choose between Galway’s Joe Canning and Waterford duo Jamie Barron and Kevin Moran for the Hurler of the Year accolade.

Shortlisted for the Young Hurlers of the Year prize are Cork’s Mark Coleman, Waterford’s Conor Gleeson and Galway’s Conor Whelan.

The GAA and GPA have announced PwC as the new sponsors of the All-Star awards in an arrangement that will run until 2020 and see the rebranding of the awards under the title of PwC All-Stars.
