Mayo's Cora Staunton is nominated for a possible 10th All Star and could join Kerry great Mary Jo Curran as the most successful award winner.

Briege Corkery and Rena Buckley created history claiming a remarkable 'double double' of All-Ireland wins and both are nominated in the midfield positions.

Elsewhere, Dublin's Sinead Goldrick could claim her fourth consecutive gong on November 14th when the winners will be announced at the Citywest gala ceremony.
