The 45 nominees for the 2019 Hurling All-Star team have been announced, with All-Ireland champions Tipperary leading the way with 11 players.

Beaten finalists Kilkenny have nine included, as do Munster champions Limerick. Meanwhile, Leinster winners Wexford have eight nominations. Players from Laois, Cork, Dublin and Galway are also honoured.

The nominations for the personal gongs were also confirmed. There is no room for Noel McGrath in the Hurler of the Year conversation, as Premier captain Seamus Callanan, Cork’s Patrick Horgan and Kilkenny’s TJ Reid will battle it out for the top honour.

Adrian Mullen, Kyle Hayes and Rory O’Connor are the three selected for the young players’ award.

The final selection will be announced at the annual banquet on Friday, November 1.
