The one that got away from Banner brothers
However, as Brian is such a gentleman and such a clever, considered bloke. During the interview, he made it very easy for me. I got over my nerves after that and it was never an issue again. A fellow journalist, who shall remain nameless, asked him if it was possible that Sunderland, who he was managing at the time, might part company with him. He asked Roy if he was thinking of walking away. Roy just looked at him with those piercing eyes of his. I could feel my microphone quivering.
Needless to say, that was the end of the interview. I was delighted that I had got my questions in beforehand. Doyle was not happy as he had been left out of the team for the Slovakia game a few days before.

We caught up with him in the mixed zone. He felt he should have been trusted by the manager. It was a very honest, refreshing interview. We all knew that she was religious but most of the knowledge seemed to be limited to the fact she was a born-again Christian. It was a 12 minute chat but about seven or eight minutes was Katie opening up on her religion.
I was taken aback a bit.
At the same time, it seemed like they officials were going to stop us whatever way they can. We were using that in training. It was probably how we got such a good performance out of ourselves the second day against Offaly. We would never have lost that game. We had ridden the tide. Have any of you met Jimmy Cooney over the years? I did a thing on Newstalk with Duignan about it and he said he had met him at the Galway Races.
Duignan had abused the shit out of him at the final whistle for blowing it up early but I said to him he should have been coming from the stand to do it! What can you do about it at this stage? He made a genuine mistake.
The one thing about that time was the stewards came in so quick. You say you were wired but was it a case of going overboard with the siege mentality?

We had to try and keep it out of our minds as much as possible. With hindsight, the first thing we should have done was get out of Dublin first thing Monday morning.
I still think we should have replayed it but we should have gone home to Clare and bought ourselves a couple of days and not go into the bowels of Croke Park the following morning. While that was going on, we were being ran around Belfield. It was all wrong to me.Snowboarding w/ Team Slovenia - Red Bull Shr3d 2013
We should have been out in the Forty Foot having a swim, recovering. I missed that anyway training session. Playing again the following week in Thurles, if you watch it again Stephen Byrne was man of the match in goal. He could have played at wing-back as handy or swapped with Frank Lohan. He had sunstroke during the week. He was sick and said nothing. This is all with the benefit of having 20 years to think about it.
We probably could have even stuck it out an extra week. It seemed to me the rematch was arranged 12 hours afterwards. We could have gone to Lahinch for a swim, a meeting between ourselves. We would have turned the tables on Offaly. Byrne made five saves. Alan Markham had a couple of shots.
We done enough to win the third game and it would have been sweet to win it that way. Nobody would have gotten more pleasure out of it than us that way. The real hard road. Did the board have your backs throughout the season? There was no board — there was Loughnane and that was it! We were only thinking about the games and Ger was calling the shots. He probably consulted with Dalo but that was it.
We had a general feeling that way but what I said then was a rush of blood to the head. We should have bought a bit of time. I was at the All-Ireland final and I was saying to myself that we should be out there but we got back into the club championship. We were then back to the gym sessions with Clare where we might have been signing into the gym but going to the swimming pool instead.
Obviously, you still think about it but at the time we had to move on.

It was different for me because the night before the match my brother dropped dead in London. To tell you the truth, I was reconciled to it fairly quick. My brother told me that Paschal was dead. His time was up, he had a heart attack and it put in context for me. If you told the three of us that we would have won three Munsters and two All-Irelands we would have taken the hand off you. A Kilkenny fella would probably be more bitter about it, looking for his eighth medal.
We felt there was another one in us. That was his way. When Clare won the U21 in and subsequent to that the three-in-a-row, in the last five or six years they should have won one or two with that group of players. Munster is so competitive that you need a lot right to win it. You would be worried watching the U21s. We won the U21s the following year. Maybe they kind of got that All-Ireland too soon in their own development.
Quarter-finals were in Croker, which was a help, but we were in two semis. The two boys have been talking openingly about pressure. If you look at the league, I know Tipp were beaten in the final but they used 31 players and were looking at the bigger picture. Over the last few years, I would have always felt the longer the year went on the better Clare would get. It could come down to the last game against Limerick, 19, in the Cusack Park.
It would be some hot day.
