Okay....That's finally that with this bunch. Not faulting the lads who togged out, the "management" or even the dreaded County Board. We're out of our depth even in Connacht. Players who disavow a B c/ship are wrong.
The problem, as I've stated here before is our inability to breech the invisible 12 point Maginot line. Our Connacht final win of '94 was 0-12 to 1-08 or thereabouts. The s/f agin the Dubs totalled 1-09 same as today.
I'm looking at them for more than 60 years and no sign of a replicate McGarty. My eyes may be dimmed and wet with tears of years of failure and yet I can envision him still in his halcyon days - the soar and fetch, the shoulder drop and he's away.....a dummy swerve - a reverse off-load to/from Cathal Flynn and the white flag flies....
Fuck me the defeat is hard to swallow tonight, but the memories will last out my time..
Many's the county has their treasures but none will ever surpass Packy McGarty.
