The four were integral cogs in the Mullinalaghta armoury as the north Longford half parish became the story of the 2018 GAA season by capturing the AIB Leinster Club senior footballchampionship title last December at the expense of Dublin kingpins Kilmacud Crokes. Unfortunately, Mullinalaghta's memorable club odyssey was ended by Dr Crokes of Killarney. 

Tipperary All-Ireland medal winners and 2019 All Stars Padraic Maher and Ronan Maher will also be honoured at this year's ceremony.
