All-Star Gazing was written by Moira and Eileen Dunne and was published in November 2021 to mark the 50th anniversary of the All-Star scheme. The book was launched by Michael Lyster in Croke Park with a host of All-Star hurlers and footballers present. You can read all about the star-studded event here.

Moira and Eileen Dunne are daughters of Mick Dunne, who along with his fellow journalists, Paddy Downey, John D Hickey and Pádraig Puirséal, got the All-Stars scheme up and running in 1971.

Using their father’s records as a starting point, the sisters met over 100 All-Stars and other stakeholders, who shared their memories of All-Star banquets, All-Star trips and the importance of the awards.

The book also includes a listing of each Football and Hurling All-Star team from 1971 to 2020, and for the first time ever, a complete list of all players nominated over the past 50 years.
