Speaking to Johnny Ward, Keady who passed away after a sudden and short illness, Cunningham says Keady was 'one of the best centre backs of the last thirty years'.

"He was larger than life.  He adored his family and his hurling and epitomised everything that was good in GAA people.  He would want to be remembered for his passion for his game and for his family.  He was just an outstanding player."
