Roddy isn't coming back in this year.
I wouldn't blame him.
How would you even have the stomach to pick up a hurl.
Didn't he play League of Ireland soccer for UCD? Wouldn't be impossible that he'd go off and get a few quid kicking for Limerick or Galway or that level.

I'd say that ship has sailed to a degree.

He'd be better off f**king off for a summer and just enjoying life.

I'd heard he was going to do just that - ie. play soccer for the winter, and maybe go back in May.

Have to respect the man's decision.  He's been  clearly let down by people and has had enough . The sad thing about the aftermath of this situation was he was actually considering returning to the county set-up but the futile effort to entice him back was pathetic from all parties .

I can understand him not going in and who could blame him . But to say that efforts to get him back in were pathetic is unfair . I’ve spoken to two of the hurling management in the past fewdays and they were trying to accommodate him in any way possible but he just didn’t want to come back in at this stage. The door is open to him still and hopefully he’ll come back in . But there isn’t always blame to be attached. The lad needs time and who knows what will happen in the new year

What happened to him in the county final was a total disgrace. The way it was handled afterwards added insult to injury. I could easily imagine that this would leave him very disillusioned and no one could blame him for feeling that way.

Having said that, what happened in the county final and afterwards has nothing to do with the current management of the county team or with his teammates in the county. I’m sure the vast majority of them would have exactly the same opinion on the matter as Roddy himself.  I don’t believe that what happened in the county final should be forgotten but it is a different issue from his participation with the county team. Hopefully if he’s given a bit of time, he’ll agree to rejoin - I don’t think the county setup bears any relationship whatsoever to the carry on of a handful of clowns after the county final.

I'd imagine he just doesn't have the appetite for it, and you couldn't blame him.
