We're used to seeing them in their county colours giving it their all in hurling and football matches.

However, once a year we are treated to seeing the GAA's finest all suited and booted for the annual GAA GPA All-Star Awards.

And tonight didn't disappoint.

A host of GAA stars posed on the red carpet along with their other halves in Dublin's Convention Centre.

Stars attending included Dublin stars Ciaran Kilkenny, Cian O'Sullivan, Jack McCaffrey and Bernard Brogan, Clare hurler Tony Kelly, Kerry footballer David Moran, Kilkenny hurlers TJ Reid and Richie Hogan.

The lads all looked smart in black tie - almost unrecognisable to how we normally see them.
