I wonder is there a bit of generosity going on here as is the norm with lads playing

hes definitely bigger than i thought if he is 6 ft 2.
still not convinced
the photos above are not in any way instructive
 
Tan seems very concerned about Dalton......the lady doth protest too much methinks....
Concern is a big word, It interests me me that cork people can get so obsessed with the brilliance of a young man that has literally done nothing much so far.

The pressure of this kind of nonsense is ludicrous
Pa O Callaghan was the previous lord god almighty

I wouldnt be making these kind of claims about the impact of Aidan McCarthy in a clare context next year and he has delivered in serious matchs for the clare seniors already before his injury

Where is the pressure? Posters are just saying he should be considered for the panel like lots of other names get thrown about. No one is saying that we are going to win around us with him.

To be fair it's not accurate to say , that he has "done nothing".
He's scored an immense amount for Fr O’Neills and was a key player with Imokilly when they won the county in 2019.
There's something about his style and character that stands out - I think many Cork people just want to see how he would fare if he stayed injury free and got another chance.
