Meath club footballer plays into fifth decade

August 07, 2020

Cortown's Trevor Coyne

Last Sunday may have seen a little bit of history made after 48-year-old Trevor Coyne lined-out for his native Cortown in the Meath Premier football championship.

Cortown GFC tweeted this morning that Coyne’s appearance marked a fifth decade of lining-out for the club and, what’s even better, is he rounded off the feat with a goal in the 2-18 to 2-8 loss.

In Limerick, former All-Ireland winner Pat Donnelly came out of retirement at 53 this past Monday to line-out with South Liberties in their East Junior B Hurling Championship clash against Caherline.

It comes 35 years after he played for his club in the 1985 Limerick SHC final.
