Remixes aren’t only done by DJs you know! It was quite a weekend for one Munster man in the Premier League.
John Egan hit the net on 80 minutes in Sheffield United’s 1-1 draw away to Burnley, his first in the English elite division.
The Irishman’s sporting heritage is drawn from GAA games that burn bright in Ireland’s memory.
His father John would have been proud of his son’s emergence in the professional game.
John senior passed away too soon at the age of 59, eight years ago.
Six times an All-Ireland winner with Mick O’Dwyer’s Kerry team of the 1970s and 1980s, the Sneem corner forward was one of the most feared attackers in the game.
To be fair the young Egan has always promoted his GAA roots.
Egan junior’s first premier league goal also represented a unique personal achievement.
And the Munster man has been impressing at both ends of the pitch.
We all know why John looked skyward after bagging that goal.
And Egan junior admitted this remix resonated with him.
Incredible moment. No doubt one of mixed emotions.😢👏👏
