    well im more looking at the likes of michael slimmermann who played in an under-21 final in the same season he played with sligo rovers. im not just talking about any randomer who just happened to play both sports. for the purpose of this thread lets say people who have played at the top level in this country.

    OP (if you are still with us at boards.ie)
    Good call on Slingerman (even if auto correct called him slimmerman)

    In typical Mayo fashion he has managed the following

    Lost an All Ireland minor final
    Lost an All Ireland junior club final
    Lost a FAI Cup final.

    He's back in the Mayo senior football fold, was named on the bench for a few league games I believe.

    Not in the same exalted realms, but Mick Leech the great Shamrock Rovers striker of the late 60s/ early 70s (also played for Ireland) spent his Summers playing football with Good Counsel in Drimnagh. Not at same time as Kevin Moran I don't think. Good man to get a goal in either sport!
