Rebel forward included in 45-man shortlist for hurling All-Stars
SEAMUS Harnedy is the only Cork hurler nominated for a GAA/GPA hurling All-Star.
The St Ita’s clubman was one of the bright spots for Cork in a championship campaign that saw the Rebels relinquish their Munster SHC title before bowing out to Galway in an All-Ireland quarter-final.
Harnedy previously won an All-Star in 2013, alongside Cork team-mates Anthony Nash and Patrick Horgan.
Since 2007 Cork have had just four hurlers selected on the All-Star team – Ben O’Connor (2008), Anthony Nash (2012 and 2013), Seamus Harnedy (2013) and Patrick Horgan (2013).
In this year’s nominations, All-Ireland finalists Kilkenny and Galway lead the haul with 12 each.
All of the awards winners will receive their prizes on the evening of Friday, November 6th in the National Convention Centre in Dublin. The successful hurlers will be announced live on the evening.
