Ten players from Tyrone have been nominated for this year's Vodafone GAA Football All-Stars, which will be announced on October 15, two days prior to the All-Stars Banquet at Citywest Hotel.

In total 13 counties are represented; beaten finalists Kerry have 9 nominations; Cork and Wexford with four each; while Fermanagh, Dublin, Galway and Westmeath all have three nominees.

Armagh, Cavan, Kildare, Derry and Monaghan also have players on the shortlist.

Eight of last years' selection has been nominated for awards this year - among them Kerry duo Darragh Ó Sé and Colm Cooper, whom are both hoping for their fifth award. The Kingdom pair are hoping to equal a record set by Darragh's uncle Páidí, who picked up All-Stars every year from 1981-1985.

Brothers Marc and Tomás Ó Sé are also back in contention from last year's selection, with Tomás chasing his fourth All-Star award; while Marc is hoping for a third award in as many years, as are Kerry team-mate Aidan O'Mahony and Dublin captain Alan Brogan.

Meanwhile Cork defender Graham Canty and Kerry half-forward Declan O'Sullivan are also searching for back-to-back All-Stars as they aim to build on their awards earned last year.

Brogan is just one of three players shortlisted from Leinster champions Dublin; who in contrast had seven players nominated last year.

Connacht champions Galway, who served up one of the best games of the championship with Kerry in their quarter-final clash, have received 3 nominations, while Ulster champions

Armagh have received 2 nominations, with full-back Francie Bellew and forward Ronan Clarke in contention.

Both Bellew (2003) and Clarke (2006) are hoping to pick up their second All-Star awards.

Last year twelve counties were represented in the nominations, with then GAA Football All-Ireland champions Kerry receiving ten nominations, the same as this year's winners Tyrone, who had three nominations in '07.

Meanwhile the hurling nominees will be announced on Thursday night.
