The three Ulster All-star winners, Tyrone duo Peter Harte and Mattie Donnelly along with Donegal’s Ryan McHugh, received their awards on Friday night.
The Tyrone duo were pivotal in their county’s Ulster Championship victory, while McHugh was a key player for Donegal in their run to the Ulster final.
The fans were understandably proud of their players and used Twitter to send their congratulations.
However a few fans suggested players who they thought deserved awards but were overlooked. One argument was that Kevin McManamon should have been included ahead of Peter Harte, and also that Mayo’s Paddy Durcan should have been named ahead of Ryan McHugh.
Well done Mattie Donnelly and Peter Harte…Colm Cavanagh deserved an All Star imo..

Ryan McHugh (Donegal) is wing back on #AllStars. McHugh’s join Brogans from Dublin as only ones to have a Dad & 2 sons named as All-Stars
