I'm absolutely stunned tbh.

That came out of no where.

People forget that being in the likes of Jim Gavin's shoes means your life is consumed by the post you are in .  Anyone who meets him just talks football , fine , but 24/7 it does not leave time for other things . And it's not like you are earning millions like English Premiership magic roundabout managers .

Just be thankful that he honed the skills ( abundant) in the players representing a huge percentage of the Irish population into a coherent unboastful ( given their accomplishments ) team who entertained us .  Still will win and entertain , depending who is appointed , but a hard act to follow .

Nothing left to achieve , except possibly 6 in a row .

I am mindful of Michaels comments that he favoured a split of the Dubs into North Dublin and South Dublin , partly to equalise resources but mainly to allow 15 other "Dublin" players ( plus subs) the opportunity to wear the county shirt .  Some merit in that proposal , although I can remember talking to the Dublin supporters back in the eighties in Newcastle when they said they knew every Dub supporter at the match by name , all 50 of them in the bus . Cyclical .
