Farewell Marky

(Oldest Posts First)

After 17 years a great servant of Sligo football has hung up his boots. Always dependable with that trusty left foot of his and the king of sneaking a few extra metres at frees. I will always remember in 2010 when we went on that run to the connacht final his influence in those games kicking 2 late long range points against Galway in the replay in the park a stand out. His influence may have lessened of the last few years but he will always be remembered as a Sligo great. We will struggle to get a left footed free taker as good as him. I am looking forward to seeing what he does within coaching circles in the next number of years, from what he has already done with summerhill and Mary's I'm sure he will thrive in that role too. Thanks for the memories mark.

A Sligo great. Happy retirement

Great servant without question, and very observant as well, he now knows that the current Good Ship Sligo is badly holed and is already taken water on-board. Thrashed by Carlow in a challenge yesterday I wonder what the leaders of the heave are thinking now! Wednesday night should be interesting.

Maggiepie I thought exactly the same. As Jack Nicholson said when Titanic won at the Oscars, " I'm getting that sinking feeling".

Great player and a credit to his family club and county. Thankfully he got one Connacht medal.

I wouldn't be getting too crazy about losing to Carlow Ina challenge match in January lads. Comey is experimenting as he should be at this time, I think the future is bright, but it will take some time to blood the new players. We are doing the right thing, just be patient...
