I enjoyed the video clips of Diarmo … and am lucky to have been present for most of them.
2014 club final was quite frankly the best performance in a match from a player I’ve witnessed to date.
I don’t see him as being ‘only’ “the most talented footballer” we have seen etc. That’s sort of kinda patronising to my ears … although not meant so in the above comments I am sure.
His displays over many years, especially when the chips were down were superb.
Our Dubs SF vice captain under Stevo until a minor motormouth on TSG rallied the Lynch mob in 2017.
Pound for pound he is up there with the very best ball players I’ve seen in 45 years of going to games, granted the games I attended were mostly games terms involving Dubs teams.
So for me there are no provisos … Diarmuid is up there in the pantheon of greats on merit, and on performances delivered.
I miss him … terribly.
