The public have spoken and have chosen the XV in our All-Stars team of The Sunday Game era. 

At first glance, it's a good representation of talent across the four decades. Another glance shows that Kerry are very much to the fore as evidenced by eight players from the county making the side.

Seamus Moynihan

The full-back line is an all-Kingdom triumvirate, marshalled by Seamus Moynihan. The Glenflesk player may have won two of his three All-Stars as a half-back, but his commanding presence on the edge of the square in 2000, when he was named Footballer of the Year as Kerry took home Sam, was enough to sway the voters.

In the respective corners are Páidí Ó Sé and his nephew Marc - different eras highlighted on our XV.

On the '40, another Ó Sé, Tomás, found much favour on a line further imbued by the considerable talents of Mayo's Lee Keegan and Jack McCaffrey of Dublin.

The Dubs have been all-conquering of late, and the likes of Bernard Brogan, James McCarthy, and Philly McMahon not making the side may make a few sit up. No complaints at all that Stephen Cluxton is the pick between the posts and for Brian Fenton's inclusion at midfield, on the basis that he has yet to lose a championship match. 

Diarmuid Connolly

The remaining Dub is Diarmuid Connolly - never far from making either good or bad headlines - but a player who has been instrumental in much of the county's success over the last decade. 

Jack O'Shea's partnership with Brian Fenton would be one to watch if a time machine could work its magic. 

Ulster representation amounts to two. Peter Canavan and Michael Murphy are worthy picks, but for a province who enjoyed golden spells in the 1990s and 2000s, is two a fair representation? If you were from Armagh, would you be disappointed? 

Maurice Fitzgerald

Pat Spillane, Colm Cooper and Maurice Fitzgerald round out the Kerry involvement - all equally brilliant in both their movement and ability to engineer scores. Another Kingdom player whose presence could have adorned this XV is Mikey Sheehy.

After all the votes were counted, no players from Cork, Meath or Galway made the cut. No place then for Larry Tompkins, Trevor Giles, Pádraic Joyce or Michael Donnellan.
