I can think of at least a hundred and sixty thousand who are delighted to see the back of him.
One of my non native brother in law's asked who people were shouting for on our family WhatsApp group last Sunday and I said that if Kilkenny were playing England I'd shout for England!
It's the memories for players no matter whether they are adults or children. A few years back our county grounds were sacred. Only county games and club finals were allowed to be played. I was a delegate at underage a few years back, and along with your own club and a few more, we proposed that every underage final be played in the county grounds. It gives them a chance to experience it. It took a good few years for it to come to fruition - but for the last few years, that's what happens. It's the same with county players - no matter how good they are, they need to experience playing in Croke Park a few times in their lives.our mother's and others had a brilliant day yesterday in croke Park,for the 10 mins they got playing it meant the world to them,herself was one of the 10 drawn out of a hat to play,there was a bit fuss made of it,blue light parade up the high street for the team and a big crowd out to see them and a massive party in priors last night
while they won absolutely nothing the excitement and memories that they got from it was unreal
it's a pity that the gaa doesn't give more opportunities even during other games to the weaker counties and clubs that will never have a chance of playing on the pitch.
hopefully our neighbours fermanagh will be lucky in the replay as they just ran out of time
the meath ladies would put any mens team to shame with their skills and speed of playing and it was a well deserved win
They probably wouldn't even take on Colm o Rourke as manager as they'd be too good.
Needless to say he never offered to do much for his home county or club here either if he was that interested in getting back into management
