I'm 45 years of age and the best full back I've seen was Barry Owens  (fermanagh), class act. Seamus Moynihan was a centre half back, he was only plugging gaps at full back. Ronan Clarke and Pauric Joyce both took him to the cleaners in All Ireland finals.

I would have Darren Fay well ahead of Moynihan who was a filler in as a FB.

Do you think any team is going to stick to this?

A defender 2m away from a forward.

Sounds good but unrealistic.

Don’t think Roscommon defenders would have any problem with this!

A skillful player could weight a beautiful pass using a drop kick, and that’s exactly what Jimmy Burke did.......he could get height and distance yet slow the ball at the same time  to make it easier for the recipient to catch it

Indeed a nicely flighted dropped kick pass would land like a butterfly in your hands. Burke’s pass that day was about 40 yards and found Lowry perfectly. Most of the Mayo lads around me considered it a fluke though🤪

I remember a  great  drop kick pass from Jimmy Burke in to Seán Lowry who scored a cracking goal. Think it was 1985 Connacht Final. Maybe some of the Mayo lads can fish it out.

Din Joe Crowley scored a brilliant goal for Kerry in the 1970 final v Meath. Great solo run and cracking finish.

Seán O’Neill scored a classy goal in the 1968 final. Great coolness

Murt Connor’s goal for Offaly at a vital time in 71 final wasn’t bad either. Out in front of defender, catch ball, swivel and bury it. I’m sure older Biffos still relish it.

Declan Meehan goal.
Jack o shea also against roscommon was a fine goal

Jack O'Shea did not score a goal against Roscommon in an AI final.

Joe Kavanagh scored 2 great goals in 1993 and 1999 and was on losing team on both occasions.

I just saw today that notorious mercenary "Mad" Mike Hoare died last weekend. A colorful if unsavory character. Got into some close scrapes but managed to live to 100!

Anyone know if Irish citizens abroad can do a postal vote. I’ve lived in England since 2003. Not entirely clear on the websites I’ve read but I’m sure you used to be able to do this.

No. Irish people abroad cannot vote in elections unless they are registered to vote in Ireland and return to vote. There is no provision for postal voting.
