THE PLAYERS:

Kevin Darcy – Firmly established himself as number 1 keeper this year. Excellent shot stopper. Distribution continues to improve. Growing with confidence.

Keith Roche – Provides excellent competition around the half back line. Most comfortable at wing back and always a threat going forward. Would benefit from training more instead of updating his Facebook status.
Gerry Kavanagh – 1 of the first names on the team sheet this year. Improves with every game. Very comfortable on the ball and always out in front.
Davy Bolger – Very comfortable in defence or attack. Good distribution from his left foot and very solid in the tackle.
Cormac Henry – The man from Mayo has been a revelation since he joined the panel. Tough tackling & no nonsense defender.
Tomas Hayes – Has benefited from a run of competitive games. Attacking half back. Playing his best football in years. Very comfortable at this level.
Sean Moore – Can fill in anywhere along the full back line & has done so on many occasions. Solid under a high ball and uncompromising in the tackle. Brings vital experience to that line of defence.
Simon Lawlor – Captain fantastic, flying wing back, chips in with the occasional score and all round good guy.
