Apparently subs didn't get medals then? Maybe that was subs not listed but McCarthy always said Walsh should have two.

21 medals were given back then, no additional. Some county boards made replicas or other awards for the rest of the Squad but 21 only got them. Dennis Walsh did play in the Munster championship but I thin got injured and never got back into the football team.

First seen Teddy in the '86 U21 AI final, monster of a jump. Won 3 U21 AI's. Brilliant player

The list is short for the number of players with both football and hurling regardless of the year.

Only a few counties have won all Irelands in both codes in the last 50 years- Cork, Offaly and Galway I think.
Offaly won the football a year after the hurling. You need 2 really good teams and a lot of luck.

Liam Currams ( Offaly) came close
Won hurling and beat in football final in 81
Followed up by winning football final in 82
Not bad going either

His coffin was carried into the church by former teammates  Billy Morgan, Con Murphy, Larry Tompkins, Tomas Mulcahy, Niall Cahalane, and Jimmy Barry Murphy.

Both the Liam MacCarthy and Sam Maguire trophies were brought to the altar to recognise his achievement.

Can you imagine Teddy taking the ball across the field sideways, probing, and then casually throwing it backwards to the half-back to start the process again?  Because I canít.
