End of an era. One of John's great strengths was that he could always see the bigger picture. Could always see what was best for Dublin GAA. He knew how to get things done and who he could turn to to get them done - that's what makes a great CEO. And it was never about himself - he never wanted to be in the spotlight.
The recent acquisitions of Spawell and Hollystown will prove to be a very shrewd move for Dublin GAA - he very much drove this.
He is hugely respected in other counties and readily gave of his time and advice if sought. Just a genuine GAA man who leaves big shoes to fill - size 13 I think.
One of the best. Hope he enjoys a well earned long and happy and healthy retirement.
Go raibh maith agat John..
