All-Ireland Senior Champions Galway lead this year's Camogie Association All-Stars Award nominations, while Cathal Murray has been named Manager of the Year after guiding the westerners to a second title in three years.

Galway, who overcame Cork by three points in the decider, have 12 nominations in total, with the runners-up notching ten. Losing semi-finalists Kilkenny boast seven, while Tipperary have earned five in a list dominated by the top four counties.

Just two players from elsewhere - Waterford's Shona Curran and Down’s Niamh Mallon - make the 36-player shortlist.

Former Sarsfields hurler Murray took home the Manager of the Year award after presiding over the county's fourth O'Duffy Cup success.

The All-Star team and the player of the year will be announced at a ceremony at the Osprey Hotel in Naas, Co. Kildare on Friday, November 26th subject to government guidelines.
