A true legend. The only player from Connacht to win four All-Ireland senior medals, I think. Also had the distinction of playing minor football for Galway and minor hurling for Roscommon, I believe.

Pure Legend. It's great bringing up names from the past that helped make the GAA the great association it has become. Galway Abu!
