Rest in peace 5 Sams... Condolences to family, dreadful to lose at any time of year, but leading up to the xmas holidays is always tough for loved ones

Second poster to have died while I’ve been here
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

I exchanged a few PMs with 5 Sams too, and used to tease him that his GAABoard name lacked ambition. We were always on the same page.

RIP.

5 Sams used to love going to Corca Dhuibhne in the Kerry Gaeltacht. He reminded me of  s poem by Sean Ó Riordain.

Fill arís

"Téir faobhar na faille siar tráthnóna gréine go Corca
                Dhuibhne,
Is chífir thiar ag bun na spéire ag ráthaíocht ann
An Uimhir Dhé, is an Modh Foshuiteach,
Is an tuiseal gairmeach ar bhéalaibh daoine:
      Sin é do dhoras,
      Dún Chaoin fé sholas an tráthnóna,
      Buail is osclófar
      D’intinn féin is do chló ceart."

On a sunlit evening take the cliff road out to Corca
               Dhuibhne,
and out on the horizon you will see shoaling there
the Dual Number, and the Subjunctive Mood,
and the vocative case on people’s mouths:
     that is your door,
     Dun Chaoin in the evening light,
     knock and there will be opened
     your own mind and your right shape
"you can try and intimidate us, but f**k youse, we're going to win an All-Ireland anyway"

Came across as a great fella, quick witted and principled. Loved his club county and had that special love for Kerry that only a Down man can have. Shocked and saddened. RIP 5 sams.
