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.
