Tom O’Hare: Down’s 1968 success and fighting in Ballinascreen

FROM All-Ireland success in 1968, the Down team fist-fighting in restaurants and how missing out on a trip to America made his career – Down and Mayobridge legend Tom O’Hare tells his story in today’s Gaelic Life.

The ‘Bridge man discusses a range of topics in what is a golden bit of nostalgia for Down fans, and those who like a good GAA story.

“I remember the older people at the time telling us that the grass would be green on the Dublin Road before Down won an All-Ireland,” said O’Hare.

“It showed what they knew about football because we won the next two All-Irelands.”
