Will probably be a backman. There probably was, but I don’t recall there ever being a really good Irish forward.
It seems that Irishman generally make good backmen rather than forwards, with the odd exception like Jim Stynes (ruck) and Hanley (although he started as a defender).Always good to get a tall athlete onto the list.
Lot of water to pass under the bridge but the combination of height and athleticism probably makes him as likely to make it as someone like BZT.
A lot of good key defenders start out as little more than tall athletes.
100% Kee-an, I've met someone with the same name.Google tells me Kee-an if that’s anything to go by, with Kean and Keane as variant spellings.
I also tried YouTube and other people called Cian being interviewed (their name is mentioned in the vid) and it’s Kee-an there too.
Or the Italian 18 (AFL - Footscray Bulldogs - 90’s)
