Ray Murray of Long Island Gaels. No one to come near him. He carried his side to seven a side final and kept going from there.
Ger O’Halloran of Galway. A pocket rocket, excellent marker and fearless.
Richie Gaule of Galway. No orthodox three due to the 13 a side, but Gaule rolled back the years in Ireland for New York.
Matt Cashman of Ulster. Tenacious and sticky marker, he had great year for the winners and also for New York in Ireland.
Enda Barrett of Long Island. Outstanding season for the Newmarket native.
Padraig Maher of Tipperary. He was just here for a few weeks but was critical in the Premier county title win.
Peter Hatzer of Ulster. He’s normally at six but we moved him a slot due to his great displays for the province.
Naoimhin O’Riordan of Tipperary. Young Dub broke a finger early in year but battled back to have great season.
Darren Coffey of Hoboken Guards. He had an excellent year as they reached the junior final again. He also excelled for New York.
Paul Loughnane of Hoboken Guards. His displays for New York at number six were excellent, but it was on the 40 he worked most for the Guards.
Dean Higgins of Long Island. He was the main scoring threat in every encounter. The Castlebar native scored 1-4 in the semifinal.
Ger Kelly of Galway. He was excellent for the Tribe and New York in Ireland for the hurling championship.
Cormac Murphy of Galway. He was their main threat up front and didn’t disappoint in the final with 1-4.
Brian O’Meara of Tipperary. A serious scorer and brilliant ball winner.
Shane Bourke of Tipperary. Another arrival for the summer, he was unstoppable in open play.
