Few players in the history of the GAA have been as lavishly decorated on a personal basis as Peter Canavan.

Two All-Ireland gongs, five Ulster Championship medals and two National League successes represent his honours haul as the best Tyrone player of all time and, when these are complemented by a shoal of individual accolades including no fewer than six All-Star awards, it all combines to shunt the Errigal Ciaran clubman onto a much more elevated podium.

Like the rest of us, Canavan has been a more than interested onlooker as the GAA has continued to steer a challenging yet practical course through the coronavirus pandemic to date.
