His home club Erne Gaels, St Brigids in Dublin, St Galls in Antrim and he is bound to have made a token appearance for a club in Cavan when he played inter county there - Crosserlough maybe?

Allegedly he was at the forefront of players moving into Dublin clubs and had a Renault car when he moved in, his brother was also allegedly provided with a car.  Can't remember which one smashed the car shortly after receipt.

Doubt you are getting family connections mixed up.
Wanted.  Forwards to take frees.
Not fussy.  Any sort of ability will be considered

Ray Tee Bone is what's called a stats man and he's now in on the Banty super backroom team. As is well known, he was in the Dublin back yard team previously, but what is almost lost in that detail is that he was the clip board man who entered the field of play in a league encounter at Parnell Pk to attempt to batter Tommy Freeman with his clip board, after the bould Tommy deftly won a last gasp free allowing Monaghan an easy opportunity to (deservedly) level the scores. All this was recorded live on national tv. Pillar was the Dublin manager then and he drove up to the next Monaghan training session  with T Bone manacled in the boot so that Bone could apologise in person to the good people of Monaghan, who don't go around attacking opposition players with clipboards.

It's safe to say I am astounded that a stats man has such a passion for the game as i was led to believe he just did not get involved on any level outside the maths.

Jesus he loves coaching. Who's he managing next year? Antrim? Laois? Surely it's only a matter of time till he picks up the International rules reigns? Will he cross codes like Jim before him, Finn Harps perhaps?

Yeah he loves the oul "coaching" (money!) alright. Seriously though, is there ANY other man in Ireland who has played for 4 different irish clubs? Wouldn't you be embarrassed after the second one!

Any update on the Galway Football Job ? behind the news that PJ has it ?

It appears both Donoghue and Walsh were asked to cut their budgets by 200k each for the 2020 season, both balked at this idea.

It seems that there is no money to bring in an outside man, and its commonly believed that PJ has the contacts/resources necessary for funding the running of the team something no other candidate can bring to the table. A situation could arise now where PJ is the only person nominated.

That's a big cutback if true. Can see why they would walk over that.

County board are a bunch of jokers but Galway are a victim of their own success in a way. Even this year both minor sides were in All-Ireland finals. The women are in both All-Ireland finals. Being so competitive in both codes across all age grades with both men and women must be a serious expenditure. Cutting back senior squad budgets though is always going to go down like a lead balloon.

Looks like David Power who managed Tipps minors to All Ireland in 2011 will become their new senior manager.

True? Not true? Who knows?

Former Mayo manager Stephen Rochford is strongly tipped to be named the new Galway senior football team manager within the coming days.

The Connaught Telegraph understands that the Ballinrobe coach is the top choice of the Galway County GAA Board to replace Kevin Walsh, who retired from the position earlier this month after serving five years in the role.

It is understood Rochford will be joined on his management team by Padraig Joyce and John Divilly, the duo who led the tribesmen to the Connacht Under-20 title this year, with a view to Joyce and Divilly taking over the senior post in three years time.
