Just a few minutes in the company of Tir Chonaill Gaels director of football Paddy Carr are enough to understand why his players are prepared to run through walls for him.

Not a word is wasted and clichés never spill from his lips. Carr speaks with the calm authority of having been there and done it – every word carries meaning. The Arsene Wenger of the GAA world one might venture, only with more recent silverware to put on the table.

On Sunday at Ruislip he’ll ask his players to climb a veritable cliff face when they line up against Munster and Kerry champions Dr Crokes. Not demand, ask.
