He’d also give me my nickname around that time. Well, him and a certain Monday night regular. I’d just got back from captaining the Irish Under-17 basketball team to that Four Nations tournament win. The C team had a junior league final replay on the bank holiday Monday and we’d won, so afterwards when I was working in The Greyhound, Aidan saluted me before a few punters. “Beat England on the Sunday! Then Annascaul the Monday! What a star!”

John The Mop was perched by the counter. “I’ll have a pint of porter there so, STARRRRRRR!”

Soon it had caught on with everyone in there. Donie would spot me daydreaming or yapping with someone. “Come on to f**k out of your spaceship, Star!”
To this day when I pop the head in to see Aidan and the gang down there, they’ll all greet me the same: “Hey, Star!”

I enjoy watching McHugh, but this last season or two I’m fed up with him playing the ‘poor me’ card. Flailing his arms about, hitting the ground after any sort of contact (or none) to influence referees decisions. It worked this year too, getting the Cavan fella black carded. Great player, wish he’d cut out that shit though.
