tony was some hurler,i saw plenty of him towards the end of his days.
the funny thing is,he was not a good striker of the ball and 100% benefited from being able to drop the hurl and handpass a goal back then.
but by god he had some paw on him,and if he caught it you were in trouble.
he still has the same passion for hurling,buffers alley and wexford as he had 30-40 yrs ago.
