Cork have two players in the half-back line, Darragh Cashman and Daniel Linehan, while captain Conor Corbett, following his 1-7 final contribution, is an obvious pick at centre-forward.

Buttevant’s Michael O’Neill, who did not feature in either of Cork’s opening two games because of injury and was only a sub on the evening of their provincial final defeat, is selected at left-half forward off the back of his impressive showings in the All-Ireland quarter-final, semi-final, and final.

Corner-back Jonathan McGrath, midfielder James McLaughlin, and inside pair Tomo Culhane and Oisin Fox are the four Galway players to make the 15.

Munster champions Kerry are represented through goalkeeper Devon Burns and goalkeeper Dylan Geaney.

Mayo also have two players on the team of the year, full-back Oisin Tunney and midfielder Ethan Henry.

Monaghan (Ronan Boyle), Tyrone (James Donaghy), and Kildare (Aaron Browne) complete the selection.
