In the 1940’s Coolboy Football team won a Junior Title but due to emigration the club was folded. I went to play with Carnew in the 70’s. I won my first trophy in Ferns as a teenager with the Intermediate team. I won another title in the 70’s. I was a Wicklow Junior selector with Michael Lawlor. During that time I returned to Coolboy to start my beloved Coolboy Club with Eddie Byrne R.I.P and John (Baker) Doyle.
I have been doctor, player, trainer, selector, secretary, chairman and now president, of which I am deeply honoured, of Coolboy GAA Club.
My highlight was on Tuesday evening, 19th Feb, when I got presented with a signed Wicklow Jersey by my friend and hero Leighton Glynn. I would like to thank COunty Chairman Martin Fitzgerald for showing us around Ballinakill, for the refreshments and for treating me like a celebrity. Also thanks to Mick Hagan, Eamonn Scallan and Leighton Glynn for taking time out to chat with me.
