Our new Legends - 4 All Ireland Medals

(Oldest Posts First)

I think I am correct in saying that before Saturday only Brian Mullins and Anton o'Toole have won four All Irelands for Dublin (open to correction on that one?). In fact excluding Kerry very players have won four all-irelands in the history of the game. A few from the Wexford 4 in a row team and Mattie Mc Donagh 4 all irelands 1956,1964-66 from Galway spring to mind. Quite a few of our lads got their forth medal on Saturday Stephen Cluxton, Michael Fitzsimons, Cian O'Sullivan, Denis Bastick, MDMA, Paul Flynn, Diarmuid Connolly, Beranard Brogan, Eoghan O'Gara, Philip Mc Mahon, Kevin Mc Manamon and James. James Mc Carthy and Michael Fitzsimons at 26 are the youngest now to have 4 each.. You would hope they could add one or more to that.. It shows what glorious times it is for the boys in blue...

Four all Irelands is a massive acheivement, look at some of the young players as well, at 23 Kilkenny has three, Costello 2 at 22, Brian Fenton 2, Paul Mannion 2, Davey Byrne 2, Lowdnes 2, Small 2. None of those players have broke 25 yet.

James McCarthy has four at 26.

Michael Dara also won the club championship with Ballyboden this year which is a brilliant achivement, four medals this year from all compititions entered.

Was Buttsy Daly on the panel in 2011 lads? If so he'd have four too.

What about Mick Savage? I've a feeling that it was maybe Supple as sub keeper in 2013 but could be wrong. Mick defo has 3 now though.

Only two players have played every minute of all our all Ireland final games, can you name them?

Costello has 3 injured for final but defo played during '13 against Westmeath.
