We are in the midst of a goalkeeping development in Gaelic football

Rory Beggan wasn’t the first Monaghan goalkeeper to do that. But when a certain Patrick Kavanagh appeared on the field in the 1930s, it was seen as a fundamental betrayal of a goalkeeper’s duty to the safety of his team.

According to Antoinette Quinn, the poet’s biographer, Kavanagh did not carry out these raids as part of a radically new strategy hatched by the tactical minds at his club, Inniskeen Rovers. No, Quinn wrote in 2001, it’s because he “gets bored of standing around when there’s nothing going on around him.” And so he acquired “the bad habit of leaving his post to rush onto the field and taking scarce frees, and quickly retrieving it before the action returned to its end.”
