Down’s All-Star Record (1971 to 2022)
We love All-Star history & stats here at All-Star Gazing, so in the run up the 2023 GAA PwC All-Star selections on the 17th November, we are taking a look at the All-Star roll of honour from 1971 to 2022, county by county.
Here we review Down’s All-Star record. A county with awards in both codes led by 3-time All-Star Greg Blaney. The 1st play to be decorated was the legend Sean O’Neill, who was selected on the very 1st All-Star team in 1971. He repeated this achievement the next year in 1972.
Gerard McGrattan entered the hurling All-Star records when he was selected in the forward position in 1992.
