Everyone talks about Sean Wight as the first Irish AFL player, I found this article very interesting a few months ago about Stuart Magee from Belfast who made over 200 appearances

Aside from that, a lot of inaccuracies in the rte.ie article which would only take a couple of hours to research

"Listowel’s Sean Wight, who played midfield in Kerry’s 1982 All-Ireland minor final loss to Dublin, was the first player from these shores to be scouted and recruited when he joined Melbourne in 1985 "

Emigration and sons of emigrants are a different category surely.

Just wanted to bring light to a story that I hadn't heard before this article.
The inaccuracies I mentioned don't include that point
