Gozzie Costello (RIP), midfield - Naomh Fionbarra.
Donal McCarthy (Sylvester’s) was a Dublin minor in 1986, I think - I doubt that’s the same lad.
When did Jack go to An Garda from Lucan? He went back to Lucan then, again, didn’t he?

Yeah, didn’t see Cozzie there.

McCarthy was a fine player alright but not that precocious! Must get the old Dublin Year Books out of the Ma’s attic some day.

Was 13 J.Watson Joe Watson from Skerries?

Yes - sure you’re right on that. Also, looking again I think Mannion was Ballymun.

Number 4 ciaran walsh didnt play final. ( exams ) was replaced by peter nolan ( robert emmets).

2 Tom Mannion - Ballymun?

11 was Ned McHugh An Caislean.


Nedser ! He did nt strike me as the type to have the discipline for any inter county grade . A gas man altogether. His girlfriend was in college with me, as mad as him😂
