Six players who helped Tipperary end their wait for the All-Ireland SHC title have been included in the GAA Hurling All-Stars team, sponsored by Vodafone.
Leading the way for the recently-crowned All-Ireland champions is team captain Eoin Kelly, who equalled Nicky English's Premier County record of six All-Stars.
Just one behind is long-serving goalkeeper Brendan Cummins, while first-time winners Paul Curran and Brendan Maher, along with Lar Corbett and Noel McGrath who collected their second awards, completed Tipperary's haul.
The 2010 hurling All-Stars were selected by a panel of GAA journalists, chaired by GAA President Christy Cooney, and the team announcement was made tonight at a special banquet in Dublin's Citywest Hotel
There were four counties represented in the All-Stars selection - Tipperary (6 players), Kilkenny (5), Waterford (3) and Galway (1).
Tommy Walsh, Kilkenny's teak-tough defender, secured his eighth successive All-Star award, a feat that has only previously been achieved by his county colleague Henry Shefflin.
It is the first time since 2001 that Shefflin has not won an All-Star. The Ballyhale Shamrocks clubman jointly holds the record for the most All-Star awards - nine - with Kilkenny great DJ Carey and Kerry football legend Pat Spillane.
Munster champions Waterford were acknowledged for their contribution to the Championship season with three award winners - Noel Connors, Michael 'Brick' Walsh and John Mullane.
Galway's Damien Hayes won his first All-Star since 2005, while Jackie Tyrell, Tommy and Michael Walsh, McGrath, Corbett and Mullane remain from last year's All-Stars selection.
