Swag bag

How many times have we heard the word 'swagger' in the past few weeks? We love the word swagger.

When Down hit Croke Park, they bring swagger. And when Dublin are on a roll, they're full of swagger. And what about Owen Mulligan's superb solo goal for Tyrone against Dublin in 2005? Swagger-esque.

But there can't have been many better swagger moments than Joe Brolly blowing kisses to the Tyrone crowd after scoring a goal for Derry in the 1997 Ulster semi-final.

"Bottles, cans, fruit and sandwiches were bouncing off the net behind the goals as the Tyrone people showed their appreciation for my finishing," Brolly recalls.

True swagger.
