The players on each of the four divisional teams were chosen by the LGFA’s All Star committee, and the Division 1 team contains players representing five counties.

Beaten finalists Galway have four players honoured, 2018 winners Dublin have two players included, while Donegal and Tipperary have one player each on the prestigious 15.

There are three survivors from the 2018 Lidl NFL Division 1 Team of the League, with Dublin defender Martha Byrne, Galway’s Sinéad Burke and Donegal captain Karen Guthrie honoured again this year.

Cork have goalkeeper and Lidl NFL Final day captain Martina O’Brien listed, along with defenders Hannah Looney, Melissa Duggan and Shauna Kelly.

Niamh Cotter, so instrumental in Cork’s campaign, is named at midfield, while there are slots for Eimear Scally and Orla Finn, Player of the Match in the Final victory over Galway, in attack.
