I was at the game it was the best display I've ever seen from a goalkeeper it was incredible .

Ive been going to game nigh on 40 years and as a neutral living in Laois I can say it was exceptional the Sunday game didn't highlight about 4 more saves he made on in the first half at his near post was just breathtaking but they got better as the game went on.

At one stage in the second half there was people from both counties standing applauding him as he saved from mcmanaus.

I don't think we will ever see a display like it again for a long long time.

I hope he gets the rewarded at the end of the year the chap truely deserves it.

For a county like Laois to have a player who is being talked about by everyone says it all.

Replying To WanPintWin:  "I remember Shane Curran pulling his hammer when trying to solo out with the ball in a Connacht club match a few years ago for Brigid's.
He went down in a heap, the match was stopped and it took an age to get him off the pitch.
Comical stuff."
I read that quickly and had visions of a goalie whipping a clawhammer out of his shorts to ward off tacklers as he soloed up the field. Then I realised you meant his hamstring. Then I realised it was Curran you were on about and wasn't quite so sure again. Didn't he once approach the Galway keeper Alan Keane, when he put his gloves on before the throw in of a Galway v Ros game and gave him a hearty 'good luck' handshake with his own gloves coated in vaseline. Then he raced back to his goal and changed his own pair. Keane copped on though. John O'Mahony wasn't amused, I believe. A character aka gas man, Curran.

Yeah I remember that.......

I think Curran was involved with the Laois team a few years back if i'm not wrong I think he wrote an article on how special he thought Graham Brody would become.

He wasn't wrong lads on our Whatsap group from various counties are still talking about how good he was sunday and the disbelief of some of his saves!!

I heard Fintan Kelly of Monaghan said its all his family talked about after the game :-)
