Marren/Connolly

(Oldest Posts First)

Adrian Marren and Diarmuid Connolly both announced their retirement from inter county football last night. The contrast could not be more starker. One had 6 All Ireland's, 10 Leinster Medals, a few National League medals couple of AllStars several high profile Man Of The Match Awards. He might have even played in the Mickey Mouse Compromise Games. And the other had 1 solitary Connacht Medal, a div 3 and 4 League winning medals don't think he got an FBD medal. But Adrian Marren was every bit as important to Sligo as Diarmuid Connolly was to Dublin., Maybe even more important. Thanks you for the 16 years Adrian. The one similarly the two players had was that neither of them particularly liked referees......

A well known Sligo historian tells me he scored 25-371 in 136 competitive matches for Sligo. That is some record. He owes our county nothing.

In a couple of years he will still up there with the top scorers in club football.

And also the least disciplined
