Cats get the cream at All Stars

All-Ireland and league champions Kilkenny, as expected, have cleaned up in this year's Vodafone hurling All Star awards.

The Cats picked up eight of the available 15 awards, with JJ Delaney, Tommy Walsh and Eddie Brennan collecting their first prizes.

All-Ireland runners-up Cork had a total of four players chosen: brothers Sean Og and Setanta O hAilpín, Joe Deane and Ronan Curran - who made his senior debut this year.

Waterford's John Mullane, Tipperary's Brendan Cummins and Galway's Ollie Canning are the only winners outside of the All-Ireland final participants.
