I hope they never call a storm after me. We are sick of storms and rain and wind and cold. I did have a calf named in my honour once.

We were on our way home from Ballybunion late at night back in the day.

I was in the company of Denis Keane Stack, a noted full-forward and a cousin of the Dublin Brogans, who were every bit as good as him. I gave Din a hand at pulling the calf. He was a boy and Din named him Billy Óg.
