http://huntersneeds.net/rigaro/5375 All Gaels in Tyrone can certainly reflect on a remarkable period during which the legend that is Frank McGuigan Snr and his four terrifically talented sons (all of whom have donned the Tyrone senior jersey) have brought such joy to us all. Frank commented…
“I loved playing football and all that went with it. But, as I say, I never really understood the reverence the whole of Ireland had for it. When Brian and the boys came through and won the All-Irelands, then you’d see what might have been.”
Frank McGuigan is widely regarded as one of the most naturally gifted footballers to ever play the game, and his four sons Frank Jnr, Brian, Tommy, and Shay all followed in his footsteps to play for Tyrone with distinction too.
His offspring have won five All-Ireland medals between one another, and Shay still has an ambition to add to that haul before he hangs up his own boots.
Their Club Ardboe have evidently benefitted so much for their contribution and commented…
“Frank and all of his sons are unquestionably a remarkably talented footballing family with an exceptional gift for playing gaelic football at the very highest level. Their wealth of achievements speaks for itself. These honours are complemented by a tireless work ethic for our club and perhaps most importantly a rich humility off the field.”
“And not to forget the girls – Geraldine, Kristin, Caitlin, Shauna, Jennifer, Diane and Jodie – because behind every good man there is always a good woman!”
“Everyone at the club wish the whole family a safe and enjoyable trip. It is very much deserved!”
