  • Kevin Armstrong was a renowned dual player who excelled at football and hurling for his local club O’Connell’s and for the Antrim senior inter-county teams in both codes from the 1940s until the 1960s. He was one of the greatest players never to have won an All-Ireland hurling medal, as seen through the Gaelic Athletic Association's centenary year in 1984 when a special Hurling Team of the Century was named, composed of players who never won an All-Ireland medal. Armstrong was amongst the fifteen, at left wing-forward. Four years later, his reputation as a footballer was further cemented when he was the recipient of the prestigious GAA All-Time All-Star award.
