Dream 15 of hurlers who never won
Liam MacCarthy

They might be minus a medal but they still left a legacy and plenty of memories.

Like the majors in golf and tennis, having an All-Ireland to your name is often viewed as the be-all and end-all for GAA players.

Like the GAA’s official acid test, the holy grail will always hold weight but still, the idea that one can’t attain greatness without it isn’t accurate either.

Better a near miss than a lifetime away.

As the more accurate saying goes, the destination is just as important as the journey and while these lads might not have made it to the promised land, they created plenty of colourful, iconic and heroic memories on their travels.
