Two men I richly admired died last weekend. They had no obvious connection other than I was lucky enough to meet both of them twice. John Challis played Boycie in Only Fools and Horses and Anto Finnegan played Down off the field in Casement Park.

I remember being there that championship Sunday. I was fuelled with red and black pride, confident of another victory over Antrim, but Anto had other ideas. He starred and his team won.
