GAELIC Life columnist Finnian Moriarty has paid tribute to the impact that schools’ football and hurling has on the inter-county game.
The Armagh man, a teacher in Omagh, has penned an impassioned column on the subject in today’s Gaelic Life.
“Take a Conor Glass or a Ronan O’Neill, a Marty Clarke or a Ronan Clarke – these players lit up the playing fields all over Ulster with breath-taking displays of skill for their school teams worthy of gracing any game. And this list of four could be multiplied a thousand times over, back-cataloguing the evolution of players from schools to inter county changing rooms.”
