Team of the Decade
The Irish News All-Star Team of the Decade was selected from Players who have won awards in the previos 10 years.
The team was choosen as part of the Irish News All-Star 10 year celebration.
Mickey McVeigh made the number one shirt his own after some fantastic displays between the post for Down over the last few seasons. He was joined by his fellow county players Mickey Linden and Greg Blaney. Damien Diver represented Donegal as all the other awards were shared by Derry, Tyrone and Armagh. All fullback line consisting of all Derry players was somewhat of a surprise as was the inclusion of Owen Mulligan. A strange inclusion considering he is relatively new onto the scene.
