From 2000: Dublin’s Dessie Farrell and his 11-year-old cousin, Seamus Coleman

Never EVER throw out old match programmes.

THERE’S A REASON why you should never throw out old match programmes. You never know what gems you might discover looking back on them a few years later.

Armagh legend Stevie McDonnell was obviously rooting through the attic last night and came across the programme from the 2000 All-Ireland SFC semi-final between the Orchard and Kerry.

There, tucked away inside, was a picture of Dublin’s Dessie Farrell and his young Donegal cousin who was lining out for Scoil Niall Mór, Killybegs in the Mini-Sevens: Seamus Coleman, aged 11.

Coleman never did go on to win a Celtic Cross but the Everton and Republic of Ireland man has done quite alright for himself anyway.
