IN 2009, Paul Barden was chosen at left half-forward by a Leinster Council panel which selected the best team from the province over the previous 25 years.

He beat off off the challenge of Dessie Dolan (Westmeath), Kieran Duff (Dublin) and Tom Prendergast (Laois), who were also nominated for the No 12 jersey. It underlined the esteem in which Barden was held around the province.
