How Mackessy convinced John Egan to commit to last hurrah with hurlers

On the night that St Brendan’s began their 2021 championship campaign by ending up on the receiving end of a 16-point destruction by Causeway, John Egan was watching the game on a live stream with his brother in Dublin.

aving stepped away at the start of the season following two decades of senior hurling with the club, the 36-year-old could never have believed on that night that he would now be preparing for another county final on Sunday, when the Ardfert side do battle with local rivals, Kilmoyley, at Austin Stack Park.

“I felt that I was a long time playing, and I just couldn’t give the time to it this year, between work and a young family and stuff. The appetite wasn’t really there at the start of the year, so I just decided to step away from it,” he said.
