Firstly, of course, it would be near impossible to get it right because in the time span that we are selecting from, there has been an endless list of hurling greats from both sides of the divide.
Pat Horgan from the Glen, not the present one, was a great hurler too for club and county, he’d be on the 40 while on the left we’d have Barry Egan from Delanys, who was always a classy operator.
NORTHSIDE 15: P Barry (St Vincent’s); D Riordan (Glen), M O'Doherty (Glen), P O’Connor (Brian Dillons); J Gardiner (Na Piarsaigh), J O’Sullivan (Glen), S Óg Ó hAilpín (Na Piarsaigh); T O’Sullivan (Na Piarsaigh), D Coughlan (Glen); J Fitzgibbon (Glen), Pat Horgan (Glen), B Egan (Brian Dillons); T Mulcahy (Glen), Patrick Horgan (Glen), R McDonnell (Na Piarsaigh).
In the half-back line few could argue with the choice of Dermot McCurtain from the Rockies on the right, Ronan Curran from the Barrs is at six and Tom Cashman on the other flank.
On the left, we are including the Rockies’ Pat Moylan, an outstanding player of his era.
