The Most Brothers Who Played County Senior Football

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post

4 McGuigans - Frank, Brian, Tommy & Shay - all played senior football for Tyrone in the Mickey Harte era. Not altogether surprising, given that their father was one of the most talented footballers to ever play the game.

Replying To royaldunne:  "Sunday was one of those days. Happens, nothing went right , and beforehand many myself including would have said pace and our running game was our strong point. But on Sunday we were flat and tbh looked tired. That's the beauty of football I guess."
Tired???? After only the 3rd National league game?
Maybe ye putting too much emphasis on the O Byrne Cup this year!!

Replying To tomsmith:  "Tomsmith here

I just wonder what County has the distinction of having the most brothers that played County Senior football.
I think the County Meath had 3 Lyons brother, one being Michael.Pauric and another one of them."
The 7 McKenna brothers from An Eochair in Tyrone must hold some sort of record, all 7 represented Tyrone in 70/80's at some level from minor, U21 to senior with 3 of them appearing together on the same team in the 1980 championship.
