Open Thread: Do you agree with our 2020 All-Star football team?

It’s a side dominated by Dublin players.

DUBLIN HAVE EIGHT players on our football All-Star team after winning their sixth All-Ireland title in succession. 

Despite the fact Stephen Cluxton didn’t concede a goal all championship, Raymond Galligan takes the number one spot for his stunning performances with Cavan.

The Breffni men have two others on the team – Ciaran Brady and Thomas Galligan. Mayo’s trio includes Oisin Mullin, who enjoyed a breakout campaign and gave a strong performance in the All-Ireland final.

Eoin Murchan is probably the unluckiest Dub to lose out, with Padraig Faulkner of Cavan another close call.

Niall Scully gets rewarded for his consistency in a forward line that also includes Footballer of the Year frontrunner Ciaran Kilkenny. Tipperary’s Conor Sweeney bags a deserved spot in the last line of attack.
