KILKENNY’S ALL-IRELAND heroes have been recognised with 11 nominations for the 2022 PwC Camogie All-Stars.

The 36-player shortlist was unveiled on Wednesday morning ahead of the annual end-of-season awards ceremony, which takes place this year on 26 November in Croke Park.

Beaten All-Ireland finalists Cork received 10 nominations, with semi-finalists Waterford and Galway receiving seven and five nominations respectively.

Dublin duo Aisling Maher and Aisling O’Neill, and Limerick’s Caoimhe Costello are all nominated in the forwards, completing the shortlist.

The nominees for Manager of the Year were also announced on Wednesday, with 2021 winner Cathal Murray again recognised for his work with Galway.

Kilkenny’s All-Ireland winning manager Brian Dowling, and Brian Kearney and Mark McFadden — who steered Antrim to the Premier Junior title this summer — are also in contention.
