Vodafone All-Stars

November 8, 2018

Congratulations to Brian Murphy on his selection on the 2006 Vodaphone All Star Hurling team. The team was announced at a gala function in Dublin last Friday night. The All Star concept was first introduced in 1971 and for the past 35 years the top class hurlers and footballers are honoured each year. This is a fantastic honour for Brian, his family and his club Bride Rovers. In 2004 Brian was awarded the Young Hurler of the Year Award and last year he was also nominated for an All Star. Having been selected on the G.P.A. Team of the Year a few weeks ago the All Star award is a fitting tribute to Brian who had a marvelous year with the Cork hurling team – even though the Rebels didn’t retain the McCarthy Cup. To be picked on the All Stars fifteen one needs to show consistency over the full season and this is what Brian did in this year of 2006.
Well done Brian from all in the club. Get the passport ready for the trip to Dubai! Brian was joined on the All Stars team by fellow rebels Donal Óg Cusack, Ronan Curran and Jerry O’Connor.
