Mayo GAA

  • Former Mayo footballer Anthony Finnerty joined Michael D. McAndrew this afternoon to pick his best 15 team.

    A playing career with Mayo spanning from the early 1980's to 1996 meant the Mayo man had plenty to choose from.

    The Moygownagh native reflected on the difficulty facing his life not only from a GAA perspective but also as a publican and teacher.

    Now living in his adopted home of County Galway, Anthony is hopeful that GAA facilities like walkways will soon open up.

    Here is Anthony’s best 15:

    Pat Comer
    Kenneth Mortimer
    Seamus Moynihan
    Keith Higgins
    Paidi O’Se
    Tomas Tierney
    Martin O’Connell
    Jack O’Shea
    Anthony Tohill
    Ciaran McDonald
    Larry Tompkins
    Pat Spillane
    Peter Canavan
    Padraic Joyce
    Maurice Fitzgerald
