Replying To mooncat:  "If you google Mooncoingaa you will see a photo of the unveiling of a magnificent statue to Richard "Drug" Walsh,the only KK man to captain 3 AI winning teams,in the photo with the GAA preisdent is the sculptor Seamus Connolly who is sculpting the statue of John Joe,I was down there Saturday and it is a really magnificent statue,I have no doubt that the statue of John Joe will do him proud."
Hi Mooncat

Thanks very much for sharing that, I missed that story at the time. A wonderful job done by Mooncoin GAA, fair play, a fitting tribute to Drug Walsh. It's really important to preserve the memories of these legends for future generations. Great to hear that you're happy with the work of Seamus Connolly, I have no doubt that he will deliver a monument to John Joe that we can be very proud of.

Hi folks

If you fancy being in with a chance of winning 2 Hogan Stand tickets to the Derry vs Galway/ Cavan vs Westmeath double header this weekend, in addition to the only merchandise ever signed by the 50th All-Star Football team, simply make a €5 donation to the John Joe O'Reilly statue fund @

https://www.gofundme.com/f/gallant-john-joe-memorial-statue

The draw is Tuesday at 9pm. Every €5 contributed = 1 entry

2020 All-Star football team: Raymond Galligan (Cavan); Oisín Mullin (Mayo), Pádraig Faulkner (Cavan), Michael Fitzsimons (Dublin); James McCarthy (Dublin), John Small (Dublin), Eoin Murchan (Dublin); Brian Fenton (Dublin), Thomas Galligan (Cavan); Niall Scully (Dublin), Ciarán Kilkenny (Dublin), Con O'Callaghan (Dublin); Cillian O'Connor (Mayo), Conor Sweeney (Tipperary), Dean Rock (Dublin).

Given that there was no All-Stars banquet or tour in 20202, this is the only merchandise that the team has ever signed. Thanks very much to all the players who signed the items for us, I'm delighted to say that they were a pleasure to deal with.

1st prize will walk away with:
