New York play Leitrim in the opening round of the Connacht Senior Football Championship Saturday with the Exiles looking for their first-ever win in the competition having first entered the tournament back in 1999.
Throw-in is at 6 p.m. Saturday, that’s 11 p.m. Irish time.
Michael Dorgan with The Long Hall Podcast interviewed Johnny McGeeney, Niall Madine and Shane Carthy ahead of the game
Niall Madine has been one of the top forwards in the county in recent years. Niall has played at inter-county level for County Down and plays with Kerry New York here and also drafts up to Brooklyn Shamrocks.
Former Dublin footballer Shane Carthy joins the New York panel this year while commuting from Boston Carthy and brings a ton of experience to the New York fold being a multiple All-Ireland winner with Dublin and he has also won an All-Ireland club winners medal with his home club St. Vincents.
Today Carthy plays his football with Donegal Boston and interestingly Saturday will not be the first time he togs out in a New York senior jersey, Carthy made his intercounty debut with the Exiles back in 2009 at the age of 17 when New York lost to Mayo. He spent most of his childhood living in New York, which he touches upon in this interview.
Manager Johnny McGeeney takes charge of the New York senior team for the second consecutive year having led St. Barnabas to back-to-back county titles in 2020 and 2021 with all-American-born players – a first for the county.
McGeeney is originally from Armagh and played intercounty for a number of years with New York.
