Voting for the Players’ Player of the Year Awards is now underway amongst inter-county players.
Speaking on the upcoming awards, Camogie Association President Kathleen Woods said: "I am delighted that we will once more recognise some of the best performers in the 2020 Liberty Insurance All-Ireland Championships at this year’s All-Stars awards.
"Although we cannot gather in person this year it will still be a great occasion to honour the winning players and mark another fantastic year of inter-county Camogie action.
"In particular, the Players’ Player of the Year Awards are unique and prestigious honours for any player as they recognise the esteem in which players are held amongst their peers.
"This is the sixth year of these awards and the Camogie Association are delighted once again, in collaboration with both the WGPA and Liberty Insurance, to recognise at a national level, the immense contribution of our leading players."Tweet
