Sheridan is a Kildare hotshot

24 April 2001
Cathal Sheridan will face up to his native county when Meath take on Kildare in the Leinster hurling championship on Sunday.

It was always bound to happen, but it was assumed that when Cathal Sheridan faced his native county in a championship match it would be in a game of football. Sheridan never found favour with Mick O’Dwyer though and he now is doing his bit for the Lilywhite hurlers. A first round victory over Wicklow means that Sheridan will play corner forward against Meath in Sundayís championship match in Clane.

The former Kiltale man played at all levels for the Royal hurlers but was better known for the part he played as a footballer, winning All-Ireland medals at minor and U21 levels for Paul Kenny managed sides in 1990 and ’93.

John Davis and his team will be watching out for Sheridan after he hit three points in last Sunday’s league win over Wicklow. Sheridan moved to Kildare when he was posted as a Garda in Kilcock back in 1998.
