Replying To mooncat:  "If you google Mooncoingaa you will see a photo of the unveiling of a magnificent statue to Richard "Drug" Walsh,the only KK man to captain 3 AI winning teams,in the photo with the GAA preisdent is the sculptor Seamus Connolly who is sculpting the statue of John Joe,I was down there Saturday and it is a really magnificent statue,I have no doubt that the statue of John Joe will do him proud."
Hi Mooncat

Thanks very much for sharing that, I missed that story at the time. A wonderful job done by Mooncoin GAA, fair play, a fitting tribute to Drug Walsh. It's really important to preserve the memories of these legends for future generations. Great to hear that you're happy with the work of Seamus Connolly, I have no doubt that he will deliver a monument to John Joe that we can be very proud of.
