The Gaelic Athletic Association & Gaelic Player's Association All Stars Footballer of the Year—known for sponsorship reasons as the Vodafone Footballer of the Year—is a Gaelic football award that honours the achievements of a footballer of outstanding excellence. The incumbent is Lee Keegan of Mayo.
Created in 1995, the award is part of the All Stars Awards, which selects a "fantasy team", comprising the best players from that year's All-Ireland Senior Football Championship. Voting for the award is undertaken by a select group of journalists from television and the print media.
The All Stars Footballer of the Year is one of the most prestigious accolades a Gaelic footballer may win in the course of his career.
Two sets of brothers have been named All Stars Footballer of the Year. They are:
Colm Honan and Kevin Hoanan of Meath
