JOE McNally’s biggest regret might surprise you.

It’s not falling away from the Dublin squad in 1992 and missing out on a second All-Ireland medal in 1995, despite being only 30 years of age and one of the most lethal forwards on the club circuit.

And believe it or not, it’s not getting "roasted," by Páidí Ó Sé in the 1984 All-Ireland final when the two famously ‘bonded’ during the national anthem.
