Lee Keegan is all over the media at the moment, having taken part in a promotional event yesterday to launch the National Féile competition. He had plenty of interesting things to say.
In the piece with him on the RTÉ website (here) he talks about the successful League and looks ahead to how we’re shaping up for the summer. He also has some very complimentary words to say about the county’s fans and how that vocal support at Croke Park a few weeks was so important to get the team going.
When asked by Ian O’Riordan in the Irish Times (here) if James Horan is different second time round, Lee says the manager is “definitely more scary.” This is an interesting piece, providing some good insights into how James is approaching the job this time.
Lee also makes some very valid points about the need for a sensible balance between football and life off the pitch, thoughts that are amplified in a piece on him in the Irish Independent (here). As the Westport player stresses here and in those other pieces, there are no daft contracts or drinking bans in operation under James Horan. The lads act like adults and are treated as such, which is exactly how it should be.
