Dublin's dominance on the field has translated to dominance in the 2018 PwC Football Team of the Year.

Seven of the 15 players in the team which you can check out in full below are from the 2018 All Ireland winners, including both midfielders Brian Fenton and Brian Howard.

Beaten finalists Tyrone have a representation of two in the shape of Colm Cavanagh and Padraig Hampsey among the six backs.

Monaghan's Rory Beggan is named in goal - Dublin's Stephen Cluxton missing out - with his fellow countyman Conor McManus also selected, while Kerry starlet David Clifford is included after an excellent debut year for the seniors off the back of Minor success with his county in 2017.  

Donegal and Galway are also represented in the shape of Ryan McHugh and Ian Burke respectively.

"Congratulations to those who have picked up awards this year. I know from personal experience what a huge honour it is to receive an All-Star and what it means to players to be recognised for their outstanding performances throughout the year," said GPA CEO Paul Flynn.

 

"Gaelic Football is continuously evolving and the hard work and determination that has been displayed by these players throughout the season is testament to that.

"Each All-Star winner, the nominees, and their team mates, have contributed to a fantastic 2018 competition and for that we are all grateful. Well done and congratulations to our 2018 Football All Stars."

The announcement of the 2018 PwC All-Star Hurling team will be made live on Friday night, as well as the announcement of the Footballer and Hurler of the Year and awards for Young Footballer and Young Hurler of the Year.

The player of the year awards are voted on exclusively by the players. The nominees for these are Brian Fenton, Ciaran Kilkenny and Jack McCaffrey for Player of the Year and David Clifford, Brian Howard and Michael McKernan shortlisted for Young Player.
