The catch he made from the last kick-out against Down in 2010 summed him up.
Surrounded by bigger, stronger, younger men, he soared above them all to win the ball that very nearly ended up in the net with the last kick of the game.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

So something good did come out of our trip to Newbridge yesterday so, got to see him in the flesh one last time. Pity that free didn't go over. Game that sticks out for me is the run around he gave us in 05, impossible to tie down.

Some player. Got better with age. Seemed to possess every skill needed.

Should've been moved into Corner forward v Dublin in 2011 when Dublin had a debutant in the corner and 14 men - could've all been different.

Why wouldn't his marker have just followed him?

You'd still have a good corner forward playing in a position he's comfortable in, with either a rookie or a fella less comfortable in there marking him.

The great man kicked 3 points off the bench for the Kildare Junior Team tonight. He will grace Croke Park again in the Leinster Junior Final in a few weeks time.
There's Seán Brady going in, what dya think Seán?

Legend. No harm having a man like that around, he was only a sub, the starting forward line were all young bucks. Excited to see Jack Robinson back in the white himself and Nash scored 1-7 between them, some serious forward talent in Kildare at the moment.

A brilliant footballer. Lots of guys give up playing way too early....great to see him back in Croke Park soon.
