Rhode's Alan McNamee may have picked up his tenth county SFC medal last weekend, but the former county star was keen to point out that the club had achieved a record of their own.

McNamee surpassed Ferbane's Pat Doyle's haul of nine medals when he helped his side defeat Clara in last weekend's county final.

The win made it 28 in total for the Rhode club and puts them in the lead in terms of championship wins in the county, which McNamee feels is far more significant than his personal haul.

"To get Rhode to number 28 was the big thing," McNamee told the Midland Tribune. It is obviously a great achievement to get to ten medals."

He added: "I better enjoy it while I can, there are a few of the boys behind me on nine and they have three or four years on me. It definitely does help winning. I am still enjoying playing and training.

"Going training can be tough some nights and you might say to yourself 'why are you still doing this' but days like this are what makes it and having big games to look forward to.

"We have great team mates and great management in Rhode and while we are still enjoying it, we are going to keep pushing it on as as much as we can."
