Danny hailed from Kingscourt and played senior intercounty for his native Cavan. A passionate GAA man, he was involved with the underage section of Slane GFC over a 20-30 year span. Danny's sons Denis and Stephen continued the legacy. Denis junior played for the Blues when they were in the senior ranks. Stephen was an outstanding underage player and represented Meath at minor and under 21 level. Danny never missed an underage Slane, Meath or Cavan game.
