memory? Playing in Croke Park when I was around 10 in the Cumann
na mBunscoil Final with Scoil Thomáis.
What was been your most memorable moment (On the field) in Brigids colours:
The Junior Football Championship
final V Man O War in 2007 or beating Na Fianna in the U21 QF after being
7 points down with less than 5 minutes left would be the top two.

Any of our recent team trips
to Dromahair in Leitrim (2005 and 2009) or Kilbaha in County Clare (2008).
Worst moment in Brigids colours:
Losing the 2004 and 2005 Under
21 A finals both by a point to Vincents and Judes was horrible. Losing
to Craobh Chiarain in this years JFC when we are 10 times the better
side, probably tops that.
Will listen to anything, hard to beat a drunken Seamus Lynam ballad
