Lar Corbett Justifiably Crowned King At All Star Awards

Lar Corbett

The 2010 All Star Awards confirmed Tipperary’s status as All-Ireland hurling champions last night. The premier county picked up a total of six awards, just one ahead of Kilkenny, whose bid for a historic five in a row they derailed in last month’s All Ireland final.

The champions also landed the two big individual awards, with Lar Corbett selected as Hurler of the Year after a season that culminated in him becoming the first player in 40 years to hit a hat trick in an All-Ireland final.

His team mate Brendan Maher was named Young Hurler of the Year, after an outstanding season at centerfield, which also earned him a nomination for the senior award.
