Former Tyrone star Sean Cavanagh came in for some high praise on Twitter last night after the latest instalment of Laochra Gael followed his glittering career.
Cavanagh picked up three All-Ireland SFC titles, five All-Stars and a Footballer of the Year award during his inter-county career which spanned 16 seasons with the Red Hands.
In last night’s episode on TG4, the Moy clubman reflected on his success and his sacrifices during is playing days.
Here was some of the reaction during and after last night’s programme:
Seán Cavanagh in 2008, perfect all-round footballer #LaochraGael— Daniel Keohane (@KeohaneDan) April 22, 2021
Cluxton introduced the new era of Goalkeepers but Sean Cavanagh introduced the new era of Midfielder. Pace, Power, Skill, Work Rate, Dynamic. Incredible, On his day unplayable no doubt.— The Gaelic Goalie (@CraigLynch21) April 22, 2021
Another great effort from @SportTG4 & @Laochra_Gael. There's no doubt that Sean Cavanagh is in the upper echelon of the Tyrone greats. Player of the year 08, 5 All Stars, 3 AI Senior medals, 6 Ulster Senior medals, an AI minor, & record Tyrone appearance holder, he's done it all.— Eunan Lindsay (@eunanjack) April 22, 2021
#LaochraGael great watch on Sean Cavanagh. Incredible player!! Unplayable in full flight.. that dummy was madness.. ruined many a man!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻— Chris Kerr (@Kerrso86) April 22, 2021
There's something really fascinating and impressive about Sean Cavanagh. Always a brilliant footballer but even more eloquent off the pitch. Seems very much his own man and it's impossible not to warm to him. #laochragael— Rónán Mac Lochlainn (@RnnMacLochlainn) April 22, 2021
Another brilliant @Laochra_Gael. Sean Cavanagh was an amazing footballer, second only to Peter the great on what was a superb Tyrone team. Some servant to the Red hands.— Michael Kane (@MichaelKane10) April 22, 2021
Brilliant #LaochraGael again tonight on @SportTG4 #SeanCavanagh what a player, what a warrior who loved representing his county, some man to kick a long range score, soldiered on through injury but always aimed high, 3 All-Ireland medals in the back picked, great role model too— Gavin Whelan (@WhelanGavin) April 22, 2021
Broke Kerry hearts a few times but what a player Sean Cavanagh was. Had everything you'd want in a footballer. #LaochraGael— Brian Murphy (@BrianMurfie) April 22, 2021
