Limerick SFC final preview – Interview with Micheal Brosnan of Drom-Broadford

DROMCOLLOGHER-Broadford are the modern day standard-bearers in Limerick club football but Micheal Brosnan insists performance and not titles is the primary goal.

“I wouldn’t consider it an unsuccessful year if we didn’t get to a final - it’s about going out and playing football as best as you can,” stressed the 24 year old who holds two winners medals.

”To be in the last two at the end of the year, you have to be delighted with that position. We just always want to have a good training regime and hope for the best,” he explained.

The pacy attacker is in his sixth season in the Drom-Broadford senior set-up.

”I used to thoroughly enjoy going to see all the ‘older lads as they are called’ playing all their games up along and winning all they did. They are great role models and it’s an honour or privilege to walk into a team with them in it. I made my debut in 2010 against Monaleen and it was a very tough team to break into - I remember myself and the two Noonans came along about the same time and you just bide you time and take you chance when you get it,” said Brosnan.

Micheal is one of the panel that also plays club hurling and soccer with Broadford Utd in the Desmond League.

”I always liked sport and have always played soccer, hurling and football and for us all it’s pretty much the same players that play all three codes. It’s all about the club and about performing – we work hard in training and mind ourselves off the field,” he explained. 

As well as two SFC titles, Brosnan has also won two Desmond League titles and a JAHC title.
