Con Houlihan was a wonderful student of disappointment, drawn regularly to quoting Hemingway's line about aspiring fishermen and how enthusiasm was not enough.
And Con would be in his element now watching Mayo, those great undergraduates of the condition, come spilling east again to wrestle with a story that seems almost too much to inflict on the human heart. It surely isn't prejudice to express a hope that James Horan's team might get over the line tomorrow.
It is no more than the declaration of a conscience.
