“To Paddy Keenan on getting the senior player of the year, what can we say Paddy.. well done, if you walk past Paddy’s house in Lordship you will see a planning permission notice, where Pat & Dympna have applied for an extension to their house, for no other reason but to store all Paddy’s trophies’.
