You got it in one.

Ha.. true enough, nah more like he just can't lose at the minute.

Hopefully he'll have another AI medal in a months time but far from easy.

Replying To jimbodub:  "I've been watching him since he was 15/16 years old.

I know that well and you are right.. nothing lucky about it. He has it all but still only young and plenty to learn and he's the type of fella that knows it too."
Congrats to con and the UCD team today.

So now that con has won everything he can in football is there any chance he'd go away and join up with pat gilroys hurlers :-0

Ha..

If that's what he wanted to do I wouldn't hold it against him but maybe wait another couple of years.. there's history to be made first ;)

There was another King Con for UCD today! Hopefully McCarthy carries his Sigerson through the rest of the year for us.

Some year for O'Callaghan alright though. His winning streak will go on for a while I reckon.

"Con" grats to all involved with UCD, a great win indeed. Tough luck on NUIG who were very unlucky, but that is sport.

A unique collection of medals at such a young age. His skill level is great to watch in a time when it's all about athleticism, skill will always shine through & it's why people from all counties enjoy watching him. A team player also. He is obviously able to stand up for himself & say what he can do, as he is been handled very well by all the teams as in modern GAA most managers are so demanding & greedy they only care about their own team. What really marks him out as unique in my book though apart from his skill, is the way he handles himself off the field. Humble, articulate, no theatrics or jackass antics in front of TV cameras, just a normal young lad, a class act.
