Kerry and Waterford dominate Munster Allstars

THE inaugural Munster GAA Allstar teams are dominated by provincial champions Kerry and Waterford, who between them provide almost half of the winners.

The scheme, sponsored by Waterford Crystal, is the brainchild of provincial chairman Sean Fogarty. His hope is the awards will give recognition to players who may not gain recognition at national level, and to counties who rarely attain success.

The hurling team, which has no representation from either Clare or Kerry, comprises six players from Waterford, four from Cork, three from Tipperary and two from Limerick.

Kerry monopolise the football team with no fewer than eight players chosen - including Seamus Moynihan who missed both Munster final games. Four from Limerick are named, with one each from Clare, Cork and Tipperary.

Declan Browne is the only current Vodafone Allstar to be chosen, but Moynihan, Darragh Ó Sé and Colm Cooper are also holders of awards.

Under the rules of this scheme, the selection was based entirely on form in the respective Munster championships. Formal presentations to the winners will be made at a function to be organised in the near future.
