ALL-IRELAND CHAMPIONS Dublin have a total of seven players on the 2018 PwC All-Star football team.

Jim Gavin’s side earned a convincing 2-17 to 1-15 victory over Tyrone in this year’s All-Ireland final, winning their fourth title in succession, and several players have been recognised as a result of that feat.

Meanwhile, the other counties represented are Monaghan (3), Tyrone (2),  Kerry, Galway and Donegal (all 1).

This year’s developments mean Dublin are now second in the all-time list of All-Star winners with 123 behind Kerry (141).

GAA President John Horan chaired a selection committee made up of senior Gaelic Games Correspondents to decide on the team earlier this week.

In contrast with past selections, it is the first time selectors were not restricted to picking players for the final team in the positions they had been nominated in.

The awards ceremony will be broadcast live on RTÉ 1 on Friday from 7pm.
