Tyrone = O'Neill

Good thread - I would have thought that Cavan was the obvious one!! Has there ever been a Cavan team without a Brady on it?

Cavan is the obvious one OK, but Brady is not the most obvious Cavan name.

Datsun, great midfielder. Looked like a tool going up for the throw-in with that umbrella hat though.

Wexford - Sex


I think you mean Kildare.

Otherwise they'd have had to start calling Wexford "Sexford".

Is sex not associated with Wexford?

I stand corrected - sex was definitely big in Kildare in the 80s and 90s though whether it's the same sex as in Wexford I couldn't tell ye. Maybe there was no Sex in that Wexford team.

I'd say there was a lot of sex in Wexford in 1996.
