It’s one thing starring on the pitch and leading your club to a league and championship double, but it’s another achievement altogether when the responsibilities of a player are combined with duties as co-chairpersons in the boardroom.

That was the position which Sligo stars Paddy O’Connor and Eamonn Kilgannon, both just 23 at the time, amazingly found themselves in with St Farnan’s last year as a Division 2 title was secured along with a coveted Sligo IFC title during an extraordinary season.
