18 Years After All-Ireland Win, 42-Year-Old Ollie Murphy Wins A Meath County Title

18 Years After All-Ireland Win, 42-Year-Old Ollie Murphy Wins A Meath County Title

In 1999, Ollie Murphy scored Meath's only goal as they defeated Cork in the All-Ireland Final.

The Carnaross corner-forward wrote his name into Meath folklore that day, and he added another chapter to it today.

On his 42nd birthday, Murphy scored 0-4 as Carnaross defeated Longwood in the Junior D Championship Final. The two-time All-Star played an hour of the match, before being substituted in Pairc Tailteann.

It doesn't matter what age you are. The brain is always the last thing to go in an athlete and Murphy's on-pitch thoughts are clearly as good as they were in 1999.

Not many people get to celebrate their 42nd birthday in such an enjoyable way.
