Would agree with that B and it’s interesting to look at the intercounty scene in recent years in this regard.
That there is huge competition for places in Dublin probably makes us a little different. Bryan Cullen retired at 30, Ger too - though more injury forced. Alan went on until he was 33 but was used sparingly in the last couple of years. Bernard is 32 now too and already accepts he may be an impact player next year. The biggest exceptions are Denis Bastick who is 35 … and Stephen Cluxton!!
Elsewhere the recently retired Marc O’Se is 36, as is Aidan O’Mahony. Gooch and Donaghy are both 33 while Donncha Walsh is 32 and Sheehan 31. Only Sean Cavanagh at 33 is a worry for Tyrone - similar to Andy Moran in Mayo.
