RIP.. Why was he called the flying doctor?  Would Padraig be the last of the all Ireland medal winners in mayo?

He was living and working as a doctor in New York but still fogged out for Mayo so had to fly over for matches etc.

I think Prendergast is the last one left

I logged on here fully expecting some gobshite to have made a crude attempt at humour to answer that question. Not often you get to say it on here but fair play for a classy way to ask a question a lot of people outside of Mayo would be interested in knowing the answer to.

 I’m sure these lads (Carney, Prendergast et al) weren’t happy when this curse craic gained popularity about 10 years ago


RIP to a true Mayo legend, it must have been a mad journey in those days.

First man to score a penalty in an AIF, by all account should have had another AI in ‘49
