Blue carpet for four Jackies in the All-Star Parade

ELEVEN Jackies in the frame. Four left Citywest with gongs.

It was the TG4 All-Star awards. The night of a thousand stars.

Dublin had a season to remember. Their first National League Division 1 final, and back in the All-Ireland SFC final for the first time since they won it in 2010.

Cork pipped the Dubs on the two big days. No shame in that. As they say on Leeside, Cork are 'The Unbelievables'.

The skipper of the Blue Armada, Sinead Goldrick, got her third All-Star in succession.

A swashbuckling centre half-back who is so often the heartbeat of the side.

It was Noelle Healy's first time to be called to the stage. It won't be her last. The Brigid's Bolt is one of the quickest footballers to have graced the sport.

An elegant, incisive half-forward that can turn defence into attack in the blink of an eye.

Lyndsey Davey had one of her best years of all. She was also on the podium back in 2005.

Lyndsey is a diligent and dangerous forward. She can open doors for team-mates and take scores herself.

The remarkable Sinead Aherne is well used to the Cat Walk. It was her fourth accolade.

One of the finest forwards the game has known. Quick feet and sure hands.

A Fab Four that the The Beatles could sing about.
