Brendan Cummins and Damien Fitzhenry were 2 I had huge respect for.

Also loved watching Conor Mortimer and always felt he was a little unfairly criticized due to his looks

Current player - David Clifford. He just has that special talent whereby you just know something is going to happen when he gets his hands on the ball.

Past - Maurice Fitz. Just oozed class. Seemed to operate at his own pace and his skill set was just ridiculous.

Hurling, it's Olcan Mcfetridge from Antrim, scored a couple of crackers of goals against offaly in the 89 allireland semifinal.

The offaly team showed pure class that day clapping the Antrim team off the pitch after the game.
