All-Ireland Hurling Champions Kilkenny claimed nine Eircell All Stars in Dublin on Friday evening.

In addition, Kilkenny's star forward DJ Carey was named as hurler of the year while Kerry captain Seamus Moynihan picked up the individual footballer honour.

Carey, picked at full-forward for his eighth All Star award, was joined by his teammates Noel Hickey, Willie O'Connor, Eamonn Kennedy, Peter Barry, Andy Comerford, Denis Byrne, Henry Shefflin and Charlie Carter in the hurling selection.

Noel Hickey was later named young hurler of the year.

1999 All-Ireland Hurling winners Cork and Tipperary both earned two All Star awards.

Diarmuid O'Sullivan and Joe Deane were selected at full-back and left corner-forward while Tipperary's representatives were goalkeeper Brendan Cummins and right half-back John Carroll.

The team was completed by Offaly midfielder Johnny Dooley and Galway centre half-forward Joe Rabbitte.

Ulster's only hurling nominee Kieran McKeever didn't make the selection.

However, he was far from downhearted after already being named in this year's All Stars football team.

McKeever was earning his first ever All Star after a distinguished football career with Derry.

The other Ulstermen in the All Star football team, Armagh pair Kieran McGeeney and Oisin McConville, plus Derry midfielder Anthony Tohill also picked up their awards.

Galway midfielder Joe Bergin was named young footballer of the year.

The All Star teams are selected by a group of prominent GAA journalists.

Eircell All stars Hurling team: Brendan Cummins (Tipperary), Noel Hickey (Kilkenny), Diarmuid O'Sullivan (Cork), Willie O'Connor (Kilkenny), John Carroll (Tipperary), Eamonn Kennedy (Kilkenny), Peter Barry (Kilkenny), Johnny Dooley (Offaly), Andy Comerford (Kilkenny), Denis Byrne (Kilkenny), Joe Rabbitte (Galway), Henry Shefflin (Kilkenny), Charlie Carter (Kilkenny), DJ Carey (Kilkenny), Joe Deane (Cork).
