Has anyone been following these shows on Off The Ball?
They’ve gone through a rake of counties, has been interesting finding out about the best of other counties.
Laois in particular had some serious stars (Tommy Murphy, Pat Critchley & Zach Tuohy) for a small county was very impressed with those names
Who would yous pick for a Dublin Mt Rushmore (4 names only)
I’ve gone with 2 GAA, 1 Soccer & 1 Rugby
Kevin Heffernan- Won an all ireland as a player, won many many championships with Vincents, selected on team of the millennium, took Dublin GAA from the wilderness as a manager and delivered all ireland titles and reignited the game in the capital.
Stephen Cluxton- Enough said really.
Paul McGrath- Grew up in Orphanages in Dublin, tough being mixed race growing up in that era. He’s Irelands only ever PFA Player of the year, arguably Irelands greatest ever soccer player, played with Manchester United and in truth I haven’t seen an awful lot of him live due to my age. For a city that has a huge soccer community he seems to me the strongest candidate
Brian O’Driscoll- The best Irish rugby player ever, was top 3 at least in the world in his peak. Record try scorer, Lions captain and glittering career for Leinster including Heinken Cups. Seems a pretty straightforward pick as well.
Anyone else have any thoughts ?
