When the All-Stars Awards were announced in 2001 Dúrlas Óg were very proud of the fact that Eddie was selected at midfield. He became the first Thurlesman to receive an All-Star Award. 2001 was a great year for Eddie, as he along with Lar Corbett became the first former Dúrlas Óg players to win All-Ireland Senior Hurling medals.
