The Cavan Minor team of 1959

 

 

The  Cavan Minor team of 1959 recently held their 50-year anniversary to commemorate their All Ireland final appearance of that year. Most of the team are still alive, but one of the players, reported to be dead in the local newspaper "The Anglo Celt" the previous week (info came from one of the
organisers, who was a team member) turned up at the function.
Turns out he was living as a wino, down and out for 40 odd years in London and somehow got wind of the function and landed to it.
See if you can pick him out from the photo.
