A former Footballer of the Year. The only player without an All-Ireland medal to amass five All-Stars. A defender (take note) with the unique boast of scoring a goal past Stephen Cluxton in three consecutive championship collisions with Dublin . . . and the equally original claim to infamy of using a GPS pack in despairing pursuit of that elusive Celtic Cross.

A smiling assassin in one game; a man-marking pest the next.
