Agreed. Think O'Keefe and McGrath were both outstanding this year.

Cathal Mannion won't get it but his performances this year for Galway was one of the few bright spots. Exceptional in every game he played through the league and championship.

D.O'Keeffe and N. McGrath.
Honourable mention to P. Purcell. An excellent season.

McGrath for sure and probably Lynch with him

Not as good as last year but poor form Lynch is still better than most

Agree with you about Cathal Mannion, a consistently outstanding player but Galway's absence from the All-Ireland series will probably cost him. Noel McGrath and Diarmuid O'Keeffe for me.

I'll go with McGrath and Mannion. I think the Galway poster has highlighted a big bugbear with the all stars in that it should be about individual performances like Mannion and not be disadvantaged by his team's results.

O'Keefe will probably get the nod and he has been brilliant too. His switch to midfield really helped to elevate Wexford this year.

I thought Lynch got nowhere near the heights of last year.
McGrath and O'Keefe all day long, not even a contest.

Ah midfield picks itself here, no better midfield players than Noel McGrath and D o keefe.
Both were outstanding for their respective counties run this year.

Dull, I know, but I have to agree with the majority.

O'Keefe and McGrath
