PG the PT: Use it or lose it

Ever hear that old saying, ‘If you don’t use it you’ll lose it?’ That can very easily be applied to strength. I see the same pattern occur every year, and I try my best to prevent it happening where I can. It goes a little like this…

Joe Boyle

Captain fantastic led by example as Donegal roared past Fingal to ensure promotion into Division 2B for the 2015 season. Boyle has been a key man for Ray Durack all season as the county’s fortunes continue to improve.

Phillip Tinnelly

Cavan were in imperious form in the grpoup stages of Division Three this year. They travelled to Limerick in an attempt to make it seven wins from seven and despite Terry Hyland experimenting, they managed to do it with Tinnelly starring in the defence.

Conor Convery

The Derry school were on the crest of a wave having retained their MacRory Cup with a win against Omagh CBS. They moved onto an All-Ireland semi-final against Colaiaste Eoin, Dublin and Convery chipped in with a brilliant nine points, seven from play, in the 1-14 to 0-8 victory.
