A lot of the younger players could learn an awful lot from him and Duff about the attitude you should have when you get selected to play for Ireland.

And Kilbane to be fair. He's not missed an Irish camp in a ridiculous amount of time and the Macedonia game was something like his 70th consecutive competitive appearance in an Irish shirt which is an unbelievable statistic no matter who you play for! Limited enough player but there's no way you can question his commitment to the Ireland shirt.

Picked out Duff and Keane as being two of the most talented players (as well as dedicated) in the squad. As far as dedication to the cause goes, Kilbane certainly deserves to be in that list.
The sport that unites Catholic, Protestant and dissenter has had its day of days. Pity anybody who can't enjoy it. Some day.
