What ever happened to....

(Oldest Posts First)

Hi Lads,

I was watching footage of the 86 semi between Meath and Kerry the other night and I saw Willie Maher score the decisive goal. Timmy Dowd was also just coming on the scene at that stage from what I can see. Both of those lads (esp Dowd) seemed to be the new, younger faces on that ageing Kerry team, and I assumed they would be around for a few years after that, but never really heard of them again - I know Kerry went downhill after that for a good few years, but did either of these lads feature much in the coming years or did they just fall off the radar (or were they not as young as I thought they were?)

Willie Maher had been on the panel for a good few years before he made the starting team i think he was on the minor team that won the All Ireland in 1980. Once Micko left alot of players even ones on the panel seemed to go aswell

I believe he broke his leg not sure if it was playing for Kerry or his club but he was never the same player after that
