You would get even weary thinking about all those that should be considered for selection and when you are going back half a century you realise the magnitude of the task of trying to put six down on paper.
Seanie O’Gorman from Milford was another of what you might describe as an unsung defender, as tough as nails when he needed to be. Already there’s a choice among the aforementioned that makes the task all the greater.
Shane O'Neill lined out at full- and corner-back, in learner times, and was unfortunate to miss out on a Munster medal in 2010 and an All-Star in 2013, but had some fantastic games nonetheless.
Denis Walsh from St Catherine’s was another great defender, resolute in everything that he did, a terrific Cork servant.
