Leonard was a joy to watch. Skill, athleticism, gracefulness, and sportsmanship of the highest order. Following in the foot steps of the great Pat Hartigan was there ever a county that put such two greats back to back.

He was slightly before my time but I caught the tail end of his career and thought him a fine hurler. That was some career he had spanning 17 years!

I also remember him on Superstars. Always cheered for the GAA players when they appeared on the show.

RIP legend of the game
