BARRY John Keane was a happy man on Saturday morning as he and his Kerins O’Rahilly’s teammate, Cormac Coffey, paraded the Sam Maguire and Tom Markham Cups around Healy Park in Ballyrickard.

“It’s a dream come true, when I was training all year, I didn’t really think of these moments, I was just ready for battle,” said Barry John Keane.

“Once we got over the line moments like this started coming into my head, bringing the cup around here is massive for the kids,” said Barry John.

“Sometimes I come down to underage training and give a hand, when I look at the kids, I think that used to me, wouldnt it be great if I could bring the cup back,” said Barry John.

Barry John and Cormac, brought the cups around Healy Park on Saturday morning during Juvenile training.

“When I was a kid, Declan Quill and Mike Quirke would come to the club with the cup and I’d be thinking they are the men I need to emulate,” said Barry John.

“It all starts here, this is where I learned how to play, the people in the background in the club have to take a lot of credit as well.”
