In this second recording with Martin White he recalled the great games, including the 1931 match against Cork at Croke Park where three games had to be played over three consecutive days, to decide the outcome. He also spoke about the manner in which news of the games played outside of the county travelled home – courier pigeons were used to convey the results of the matches. On a darker note Martin also recalled the dreadful Black and Tan campaign in Ireland which he remembered so well.
