Replying To CastleBravo:  "Seán Boylan made his debut for the Meath hurlers against Antrim in the NHL in 1962. Now I know times were different then but there's no chance a 12 year old played senior inter county hurling. There's even less chance that it happened with such a significant national figure and no deal was ever made if it.

The gaa's own website says 1943, and mentions him being in secondary school in the 1950s.

Sean was born on the 12th of December 1943

my main point was that utilising Sean solely as a Manager of one squad or another is a) not the best use of the mans wealth of knowledge & b) probably at risk of stretching him a bit thin in the amount of work that he would be expected to do as a focal point of a Management Team....
