Ye're up now to 139 All-Star awards. Kerry has 145, but Kerry men have actually 146. Answer me that."
Fair play indeed to John Small. Rough time for the family in recent times so yes it's a nice reward for him.
Good question too and looks like you got your answer from that other poster.

You're on the ball lad. Good answer to that question.
I was only looking in to see what the Dubs reaction was to all the awards and was scratching my head to that one.

That's true foreveryoung. John Small is a real tough defender and him and his family are very much involved with Ballymun. Well deserved All Star.
I see someone got there before me with Micheál. Great commentator. I'm sure he'll cherish it.

Ah there you are Forever I found you. You ré a great man to get around lol. I see a few of our Dublin friends said the Micheal Ó Muircheartaigh (yes I think he was given an honour one) but I'm thinking you might mean Karl Ó Dwyer who won an all star in 98 with Kildare. Karl was born and played for Kerry before joining his Dad Micko in Kildare.

Mick, spot on! It was Karl O'Dwyer that I was on about: a Kerryman but with a Kildare All-Star.

The great Michael O'Muircheartaigh is a Kerryman with an All-Star for Kerry, albeit not on the field of play. He's a bit like the late, great Kevin Heffernan who won player of the year in 1974.

Would you believe I only saw that about Kevin Heffernan today. You ré full of info forever. Remember Brian Cody got nan if the match for Kilkenny as a manager during their 4 in a row. I think it was v Waterford in 08.
