Miskella: Club win tops everything
21 Oct 2014 17:05
Former Cork star John Miskella has described winning a county football title with his club Ballincollig as the "best sporting feeling" he's had during his long career.
The 36-year-old played a key part in Ballincollig's 1-13 to 1-10 win over Carbery Rangers at Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Sunday. The success was even more remarkable for the victors in that it was their first ever appearance in the decider.
Miskella's 12-year tenure with the Rebels saw him claim All-Ireland honours in 2010. Three Allianz League and four Munster football titles also came his way along with All Star recognition in 2009.
However, he places last Sunday's club triumph ahead of those milestones.
Speaking to RTÉ Sport, he said: "In Ballincollig we never got close to winning the county title. To win it out of the blue like this is the best sporting feeling I've ever had. I've had some great memories with Cork. This tops it. You can't beat this."
