Underdog GAA players who made it at intercounty level?

Hi all
I'm looking for some stories and examples of players who were underdogs. Game to hurling or football late or those who were no great shakes at underage but went on to become intercounty players?
I'm particularly looking for examples of Cork hurlers but any intercounty players will do.
TIA
Mick
 
In football Donncha O Connor never played minor or u-21 with Cork.

Same with Bill Cooper in the hurling i’d say.

Lee Keegan never played minor with Mayo dunno bout u21

Great one!

I did not know that about Donncha O'Connor!

Class player!

Lee Keegan is a surprising one too. For such a quality player not to have played at minor etc.
