He was a nice man, one of those fellas that knew everybody. Decent hurler in his day too, was one of our better forwards in the pre-amalgamation days. Mightn’t have been the fittest, but would rack up decent scores from play & frees.

I wasn’t great friends with him or anything, but he’s one of those people that you would notice if he wasn’t there… either down the pub or just around the village itself.
