Surprise for countySurprise for county's first All-Star
Monday, 21st March 2005

Peter McGinnity, Fermanagh's very first All Star, was recently honoured at the Slieve Russell Hotel with a "This Is Your Life" function organised by his clubmates at Rosslea Shamrocks. Peter was led to believe by his wife, Marian, that they were popping in to the wedding celebrations of a nurse friend, and he was taken aback when he discovered the celebration was for him. With more than five hundred and fifty guests attending, Peter didn't get a chance to talk to everyone, and two men in particular he missed were Francie Lynch, who drove him to all his underage games and Father Tom Marron, who had a big influence on his life.
