  1. Eamon I haven’t seen that photo before. Is Paddy Holahan two to the left of Garry with arms folded?


    1. Paddy, Joe McKelvey is with arms folded third on Garry’s right. Two to the right looking at the photo (or 2nd on Garry’s left is Barney Mellows). I think that could be Paddy next to Barney.
