What happened next?


Kerry legend Colm ‘The Gooch’ Cooper was at Talbotstown, a small rural school in Wicklow and was asked to referee a match on their small pitch beside the school. The match was played like a cup final as the boys tried their best to impress the Kerry star.
Sometimes to get closer to the action you have to find a position that’s not always advisable. I stood behind the goal on the downhill side (not as flat as Croke Park) of the pitch. A few minutes into the game, I thought a high ball was going wide but then it started to curl over the bar. My solicitors are still trying to track down the young lad who kicked the ball.
