They have represented their counties with great distinction but have never won All-Ireland senior medals. They are the unsung heroes, the players who have performed heroically without ever reaching the winners' podium in Croke Park on All-Ireland final day.
So who are the best footballers and hurlers never to win All-Ireland senior medals (1960-2010)? Starting tomorrow in the Irish Independent, we carry nominations, drawn from the many outstanding performers who served their counties brilliantly without winning the ultimate prize. In conjunction with our search for the two best teams, readers will be offered the opportunity to win tickets for this year's All-Ireland senior finals, plus overnight accommodation at a Dublin hotel. How many players from your county will be nominated? And who will make it onto the teams?
Join us on the exciting trail of the GAA's unsung heroes and you could be in Croke Park next September.
