As a young hurler, many of my greatest memories were the battles we had with Ferns and particularly the numerous trips with my late father to play on the then hilly pitch situated on the road to the metropolis of Tombrack.

Having survived the on-field battles with Myles Breen and ‘Choppers’ Dunbar amongst others, I was often glad to see the welcoming sign for The Harrow as this was the signal that I had yet again lived to fight another day.
