Replying To theweanling:  "slightly of topic but interesting nonetheless, i remember a qualifier in Clones in 2005 between Cavan and Meath and if memory serves me all the left flank of the field were O' Reillys"
O'Reilly or Reilly's or mixture of both!? That was a bad day.

Mark O'Reilly! That could've well been his last game too. Kevin Reilly came on the scene that year too and Cian Mackey.

thats right!! Cian Mackey made his debut as a minor in that game. risky enough considering the physical strength of meath that day!!!

Replying To Oldtourman:  "You forget 3 Pillgintos, 2 Corrigans I think the Connors/O'Connors were double first cousin and they were all first cousins of that smallish but brilliant midfielder Willie Bryan. Murt Connor in 71 was a third Connor to win an Al Ireland, in 71. In my own county we had three Bennises, two Cregans, each pair from two entirely different families, plus Eamon amd Michael's father, three Clohesseys, several Quaids, two Fitzmaurises, three Mackeys, at least two Ryan families who had brothers playing, two O'Briens, two Foleys, two Grimeses, two Hartigans, three Herberts, and two from the next generation and three Carrolls. And as far as fatherrs and sons dont even start me."
Pat Doherty played for Limerick hurlers, and his brother Martin played for Cork.

That is correct. He won 3 All Ireland's with Cork in 1970's, and moved to USA later.
