Off the top of my head, you've missed two that might make the team: Paul McFlynn and Kevin McCloy.

I'd rule out Downey (last C'ship game 2001) Tohill (2003) and Brolly (2000) as their best days didn't happen in the last 20yrs. Maybe Patsy to midfield, McFlynn to the half back line and Deets into the forward line. Plus Johnny McBride and Big Niall would also be in contention.

Go ahead name your team then! A Manager can only pick 15.

Can't think of a better keeper since big Damien retired (he played in 2000, so makes the cut).

Would have K McGuckin, McCloy and Lockhart as full back line with McFlynn, Downey and McKaigue in front of them.

Tohill and Doherty in front of them.

A full forward line with both Bradleys flanking Muldoon;  Dermot Heaney, Mark Lynch and one other half forward. Possibly McBride or Lynn or Niall McCusker. Not Brolly or Gilligan.

Will confirm later.

If the rule is that it has to be in the last 20 years, here's my attempt. A couple out of position, tried to keep it 6 forwards and 6 defenders. Kieran McKeever a possible swap with McBride...went for McBride as he's more recent.

                 Gillis
SM Lockart  Kevin McCloy   Dermot McBride
Paul McFlynn  Johnny McBride   Kevin McGuckin
             Fergal Doc
             Joe Diver
Mark Lynch    Eoin Bradley   Barry McGoldrick
Gilligan     Muldoon     Paddy Bradley

I was sure he was away long before that and McCloskey was the keeper from '98 onwards.

The County Convention takes place next Monday night in Owenbeg. 

Can anyone tell me who is currently the County Treasurer ? I know Michael Hasson resigned early in the year for personal reasons. 

Also this is Brian Smiths last year as Chairman so there will be a few changes.

I believe there has been no Treasurer this year since Michael resigned. There has been help for the club championship gates from various people.

I'd imagine there will be very few votes needed this year and you could probably take a fair stab at naming next years County Board now from the nominations.

This is what I have so far for a team of the last 20yrs...
1. AN Other
2. K McGuckin
3. N McCusker
4. SM Lockhart
5. P McFlynn
6. G O'Kane
7. C McKaigue
8. F Doherty
9. Patsy Bradley
10. J McBride
11. C Gilligan
12. M Lynch
13. E Bradley
14. E Muldoon
15. Paddy Bradley

Players that could have been considered:
K McCloy
D McBride
E Lynn
J Diver
L Hinphey
B McGoldrick
SL McGoldrick
D Heavron
J Kielt

Not sure about the keeper, Gillis was there for the longest time, but I think the likes of Deighan, Devlin, Mallon, McNicholl etc, although they played a lot less, were more natural goalkeepers.
I ruled out the likes of Gormley, Coleman, Heaney, Downey x2, Brolly, Tohill, Dougan as their careers were winding down at the turn of the century.  If it was a team of the last 30yrs, I would probably have 5 of those included.

Coleman, Heaney, Tohill and Dougan were all still in their 20s at the turn of the century. Tohill won an All-Star in 2000.
