I can totally empathise with Conn Kilpatrick being reduced to a sad, desolate, lonely figure by gambling addiction

Tyrone's Conn Kilpatrick celebrates with the Sam Maguire

It takes a special kind of player to impose himself in the demanding midfield sector when the heat is on in an All-Ireland final.

And it takes someone who possesses considerable courage and resolute mental strength to conduct a searing self-analysis when he feels he has strayed from the straight and narrow.

Conn Kilpatrick fits the bill on both counts and right now the Tyrone midfield strongman is in a more comfortable place having come to terms with a gambling addiction that had threatened to devastate his life.
