Jack McCaffrey Sunday Game Player of the Year!

21 Sep 2015

Well, they've done it again! Our Boys in Blue have successfully triumphed in bringing Sam home to Dublin, after yesterday's All-Ireland Final against Croke Park.

Despite the torrential rain, Dublin supporters were out in their droves, with a sea of blue engulfing the stands in Croke Park. And it was all worth it, when after 4 minutes of extra time in the final half of the game, the whistle blew. 12 points to 9 in favour of Dublin. 

Clontarf's Jack McCaffrey was announced as The Sunday Game Player of the Year, despite being sick with a gastric bug during the three days leading up to yesterday's match and being on a drip for 24 hours, which was revealed this morning on RTE Radio 1. McCaffrey retained his place in the starting 15 for yesterday's game, managing to score a point in the first half!

A huge congratulations to Jack and the rest of Jim Gavin's team! Three All-Ireland titles in five years - Not bad!

Let's hope the Dublin Ladies senior team, on which McCaffrey's sister Sarah plays, can give us a double victory next Sunday in Croke Park!
