Ulster All Star for Paddy McGrath

This was his third award on the trot, and he is catching up on Karl Lacey and Michael Murphy who have four and five awards respectively.

Meanwhile, speed machine Eoin McHugh was picking up his first award after a great season.

His searing pace and direct running has been opening up defences all over the country.

Speaking after the awards three -time winner Ryan McHugh said he was delighted to pick up his third gong but was disappointed that Donegal did not win anything this year.
