On my first year starting on the Clare team in 1990, our manager Tony Kelly dispatched Cyril Lyons, Alan Neville and myself to the Clare Inn to do a TV interview with Michael Lyster.
It wasn’t even for The Sunday Game, it was just a tiny snippet for Sports Stadium, a general sports programme shown every Saturday back then.
Michael knew Cyril but he hadn’t a clue about Nev and myself, two young lads not long out of St Flannan’s College. I arrived straight from work in a suit. I probably thought I needed to look sharp for the TV but the interview was so short that if you blinked, you’d have missed it on the box that Saturday.
