Armagh stars Aidan Forker and Andrew Murnin have received All-Star nominations for their displays this season.
Both men had fantastic performances in the orange and white throughout the 2023 league and championship campaigns.
Armagh enjoyed a decent year, reaching the Ulster final for the first time since 2008 and making back-to-back All-Ireland quarter-final appearances for the first time since 2006.
They did lose their place in Division One unfortunately and will compete in Division Two next season.
Forker and Murnin were hugely influential for Kieran McGeeney’s side throughout the 2023 campaign.
Maghery’s Aidan Forker featured in all but one of Armagh’s 17 games across the McKenna Cup, league and championship.
He didn’t play in the second round of the McKenna Cup, which Armagh lost to Cavan, but played in every other game.
He perhaps saved his best performances to last as Forker was outstanding against both Galway and Monaghan.
It’s a second All-Star nomination for Aidan Forker, who also received a nomination for his efforts in 2020.
2009 All-Ireland winning minor Andrew Murnin missed out on just three of Armagh’s 17 games this year.
The St Paul’s sharpshooter didn’t play at all in the McKenna Cup, missing both games against Antrim and Cavan.
Murnin also didn’t play in the opening round of the Ulster Championship as Armagh hammered the Saffron’s.
That was through an injury he sustained in the final round of the league against Tyrone in Healy Park.
He recovered in time to kick a point against Cavan in the Ulster quarter-final and nailed 1-1 against Down in the last four.
Murnin was Armagh’s fourth highest scorer for the season, just behind Rian O’Neill, Conor Turbitt and Rory Grugan, with 1-20.
Armagh haven’t received an All-Star since Ronan Clarke was named on the Team of the Year in 2008.
While the team is likely to be dominated by Dublin, Kerry and Derry players, All-Star nominations are just rewards for the efforts Forker and Murnin have put in.
