As ever, though, there’s always the exception and that’s why Ballincollig’s Pa Kelly is named in the side at left half-forward.
I went for a full-back line of Kevin Kehilly, Colman Corrigan and Brian Murphy, a trio of tough tackling defenders who’d concede very little.
The half-back line consists of Graham Canty, Steven O’Brien and Niall Cahalane, powerful players in possession who never gave less than 100 per cent every time.
I’ve gone for Fahy, such a leading figure in the back-to-back triumphs in 1989 and 90, and the great Declan Barron from Bantry Blues.
Yet, older readers would, I’m sure, give a nod of approval to the Allen, Cummins, Barry-Murphy axis, a combination that could create and cause havoc with any kind of a decent supply.
