I left the WhatsApp group last night. I have had some great memories and made some great friends, and it sounds silly, but that was the toughest moment of it all.” Moran won eight Connacht senior titles with Mayo, and he came exasperatingly close to All-Ireland success, ultimately losing six finals in 2004, 2006, 2012, 2013, 2016 and 2017. He also won a National League title with Mayo earlier this year.  Aug 26th 2019, 6:40 PM Monday 26 Aug 2019, 6:40 PMcenter_img By Gavin Cooney 40 Comments He was the Footballer of the Year in 2017, the same year as he won a second All-Star award to go along with his recognition in 2012. More to follow Share231 Tweet Email Image: James Crombie/INPHO Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img
