Daniel Flynn won’t be the only Johnstownbridge man in Australia next month.
Teammate, Sean Hurley, who was named man-of-the-match in Saturday’s intermediate football final, is travelling Down Under in the hope of securing an Aussie Rules contract.
“I’m going over to Perth in November to give it a shot anyway. It’s a good sport and fair play to Dan (Flynn) for getting the contract over there. I’ll miss him but I don’t know what the story is yet with me to be honest,” said Hurley after Saturday’s final victory against Castledermot.
The towering midfielder finished the game with 0-8 after a phenomenal display.
“I just can’t believe it. I’m only on the team for three or four years and I thought it would never come. Other boys have been here seven or eight years.
“I only have to put the ball over the bar, it’s the hard work that was put in back there, Keith Cribbin getting back there I could name out the whole team, I’m so happy for everybody.
“We’ll enjoy this for a few days but then we’ll get our focus back on Leinster. We don’t know what’s coming in Leinster but we’ll give it a good crack whatever is put in front of us.”
