Ronan Clarke was the first name to come to mind

Mine too.

And mine. Young Player of the Year in 2002 and was robbed of an All Star, having roasted each of the three full backs shortlisted for the All Star full back position. Consistently a top class full forward therafter; could score with both feet and was a brilliant target man, winning high ball or getting out in front of the full back. Was a perfect foil for Stevie. Subsequently won two All Stars in 06 and 08 on the back of trojan efforts for Armagh when there was little in the way of forward support - outside of Stevie - around him. Last match that I can recall him playing was in the last match of the league in Letterkenny on Easter Sunday 2010, when he would have been 26 / 27. An all time great.

Chris Barrett....

Correct. I had one Mayo fan today claim that current management 'unearthed' him!

I wish they would 'unearth' somebody!

In fairness the young players coming through aren't at the level that was there when James Horan took over in 2010. A U21 was won in 2016 but apart from that 2010,11,12,13,14,15 and 2017 Mayo didn't even reach a Connacht U21 final.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Hardly a great.

John Toal!!

Think you missed the point.

Nah, don't see how an accident via an innocuous challenge has led to Toal's name appearing here.
