Gaelic Life’s sixth Allstar awards event took place on Friday night and it was a resounding success as club players from across the province were honoured.
The event took on a new dimension this year, as there were new awards to honour the ladies football and camogie teams this year.
Donaghmoyne took most of the spots on the Ladies Football team of the year, while Slaughtneil dominated the Camogie team.
Slaughtneil were the big winners across the board, picking up the most trophies on both the football and hurling teams as well as the Camogie team.
Their players also picked up three of the top gongs: Brendan Rogers won footballer of the year, Chrissy McKaigue won hurler of the year, and Shannon Graham was named Camog of the year. Aimee Mackin of Shane O’Neills, the Armagh Intermediate champions, won the ladies footballer of the year award.
There was plenty of reaction to the awards on Twitter. Here are some of the best Tweets:
