It was no surprise to his team-mates, fans, family and friends that Andy Moran received a second All Star and was then named Player Of The Year on Friday night in The Convention Centre, Dublin, beating off competition from his teammate David Clarke, and Dublin's Stephen Cluxton & James McCarthy.
The All Stars Footballer of the Year is one of the most prestigious accolades a Gaelic footballer may win in the course of his career and is decided by one's peers.
Andy, who turned 34 last week, battled back from injury over the past number of years to secure his starting place for Mayo and scored a whooping 3-24 in this year's championship.
Mayo's haul of 6 All Stars on the night has not been achieved previously and after the 10 games played in the championship the character and talents of the following players shone through – David Clarke, Chris Barrett, Keith Higgins, Colm Boyle, Aidan O’Shea and Andy Moran.
After a gut wrenching end to the 2017 Championship we are delighted that Andy has been awarded for his dedication, leadership, sportsmanship and awe inspiring skill. Best of luck in 2018 Andy .... great things await!!
