Kenny said after the game, “There was great courage that James showed today.” His father died and was buried yesterday, so going out and making such a show today just looks like such a person, a player and a man.
“Your mother Helen and your sister Aine, I’m sure you’re really excited at home today.
“My own son-in-law will be buried tomorrow. All the Flanagans are huge people from Galway and also big supporters from Dublin and Cuala.
“It’s a victory for all of them today.”
