Five of the Laois ladies senior football team have been nominated for awards in recognition of their performances in the 2010 All-Ireland championship.
Lorraine Muckian and Aisling Quigley have been nominated in the full-back line, Trish Fogarty at centre back, Tracey Lawlor at midfield and Noirin Kirwan on the half forward line.
It is a fine recognition for Laois, who received the third highest amount of nominations ahead of Dublin (9) and Tyrone (7). The other All-Ireland semi-finalists, Kerry, received four nominations.
Both Tracey Lawlor and Patricia Fogarty have won All-Star awards in the past. The presentations will be made at the Citywest Hotel on November 13.
