He was the Cavan goalkeeper during the 2011 U21 campaign – the team won the Ulster Championship and reached the All-Ireland final – and is currently on the county’s senior football panel.

I know I should feel privileged after winning a provincial title earlier in 2011 but I don’t. My drive and focus have left me. It’s three days after Christmas in 2011 and I am gazing at the flickering flame in the fireplace at my family home. There is a voice in my head telling me to stay right where I am. The pitch we are slogging away on is barely lit. My mind is away in the clouds, wondering why football is not enjoyable to me anymore. After training I stay with a team-mate. Me? I glance around the room to see if there is a TV; no joy. ©INPHO/Cathal Noonan

Why Are Some People So Critical? - Steven Berglas by Steven Berglas | 12:00 PM March 6, 2014 Harsh critics are often talented, intelligent, and productive people. Unfortunately, they have a flaw that compels them to disparage others – almost, at times, as though they are diagnosing an illness in need of eradication. It seems they’re living according to the famous quip by Mark Twain: “Nothing so needs reforming as other people’s habits.” In the language of the self-help and recovery movements, these folks are often suffering from a disorder known as, “If You Spot It, You Got It [IYSIYGI].” What makes this dynamic so ugly is that unbeknownst to the person under attack, the critic is being driven to criticize by a repressed-and-intolerable feeling that he’s “got” what he deplores in others.
