THERE are few counties where a poll to decide a No 1 would come close to producing a unanimous result , but Wicklow are definitely in that category.

Kevin O’Brien ticks all the boxes, thanks to a lengthy career where in addition to striving so hard to raise Wicklow’s stock, he also won Leinster and International Rules recognition with Ireland. Plus, of course, he remains Wicklow’s only All Star recipient, having being chosen at full-forward in 1990.
