Why comment on a thread to say "I never heard of him"? It's purely to wind up the Rossies.
If you never heard of him, just keep moving.

The opening poster stated that he was possibly one of the greatest corner backs ever.  I think it's worthy of comment to suggest that it might be strange that, if this was the case, quite a bit of the country hadn't a clue who he was.

They're a bit dim up North Rubber.

"Tubber" was the word I think you were going for.

Dim indeed.   ::)

He will be remembered by his people . Never won an all star. Never played on a team that came to national prominence.  30 mentions on the board according to the search function. A good lot of them in FBD discussions
How much do you know about the McKenna cup or who ever featured in the McRory cup ?

He will be remembered by many people that aren't his own also because he was one of the most recognisable players in Connacht over the last number of years.

Numerous good and well known footballers have never won an all star or played in All Ireland semi final. Less searching and more watching of games would be my suggestion to you Seafoid.

He's right though.  The simple fact is that he is not well known outside Connacht.  Why are you and Syferus so triggered by this?

Such replies as this are aimed to trigger a response. What is he right about? That only Roscommon people will remember a player that played county football for 13 years. Or that he had to win All star or play in AI semi final to be known. This is a player has played in Connacht finals,Quarter finals,Div 1 football,has represented his province,country and won two Sigerson cup medals.
Must have been a great team in hair school them years.
