September 7th, 2022


Thirteen players from Ulster have received football nominations in the GAA PwC All-Star Awards for 2022, which were announced today.

After winning a first Ulster SFC title since 1998, Derry have been rewarded with seven nominations; Chrissy McKaigue, Conor McCluskey, Brendan Rogers, Conor Glass, Gareth McKinless, Shane McGuigan, and Ethan Doherty, who was also shortlisted for the PwC GAA/GPA Young Footballer of the Year award.

There are five nominations for All Ireland quarter finalists Armagh; Ethan Rafferty, Jarlath Óg Burns, Rian O’Neill, Stefan Campbell and Rory Grugan, while Monaghan’s Jack McCarron also makes the 45-player list.

Dating back to 1971, the All-Stars are selected by a team of GAA journalists from across print, radio, digital, television and broadcast media. A separate Tailteann Cup team of the year will also be honoured this year.

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