All-Ireland Senior champions Cork have dominated the 2017 Camogie All Stars team sponsored by Liberty Insurance, taking eight places on this year’s selection.

All-Ireland runners-up Kilkenny received four All Stars, with semi-finalists Galway receiving two and Dublin completing the line-up with one.

Rena Buckley claimed her fifth award and was also named Player of the Year after becoming the first woman to captain Cork to both football and camogie titles.

Amongst the winners for the Rebels in defence were goalkeeper Aoife Murray, right corner-back and captain Buckley, left corner-back Laura Treacy, as well as Gemma O’Connor and Eimear O’Sullivan in the half-back line.

O’Connor was collecting a record 10th All Star Award to move her ahead of Wexford legend Kate Kelly at the top of the All-Stars Awards Roll of Honour.

Ashling Thompson was selected in midfield whilst in the forwards Katrina Mackey and Orla Cotter were selected in the half-forward line.

All-Ireland runners-up Kilkenny are represented throughout the spine of the team with Catherine Foley at full-back, Anne Dalton claiming a fifth All-Stars Award at centre half-back, Meighan Farrell in midfield and Katie Power at centre-half-forward.

Galway are represented by the Championship’s top scorer Ailish O’Reilly at right corner-forward and Aoife Donohue at left corner-forward.

The team is completed with Dublin forward Aisling Maher rewarded for her key role in the Capital’s run to the All-Ireland semi-final by being selected at full-forward.

Murray was named as Manager of the Year for the second time after guiding the Rebels to a record 27th All-Ireland title.

All of the winning Senior All Stars will be invited on the inaugural Liberty Insurance Camogie All Stars Tour to Madrid later this month to take part in an exhibition match against their 2016 counterparts.
