All-Star Gazing: 50 Years of the GAA All-Stars
Fifty years on, the story of the All-Stars has been penned by Moira and Eileen Dunne, daughters of Mick Dunne, who along with his fellow journalists, Paddy Downey, John D Hickey and Pádraig Puirséal, got the scheme up and running in 1971.
Using their father’s records as a starting point, the sisters met over 100 All-Stars and other stakeholders, who shared their memories of All-Star banquets, trips and what an All-Star means to players, families and communities.
The book also includes the Football and Hurling All-Star teams from 1971 to 2020, and for the first time, a complete list of all players nominated over the past 50 years.
