Meet John Hunt, the Limerick man who has been living in Chicago for 70 years. 

John is 98 years old. He was at Croke Park in 1936 when the Treaty beat Kilkenny in the All-Ireland SHC final by 5-06 to 1-05 - "I saw Mick Mackey going down the full length of that field, the ball in one hand and the hurl in the other, and the ref never saw him from one end to the other" - and he was there again to see them lift the big one this summer.

"If St Peter gets me at the gate I couldn't be happier now they've won that cup," he told Ryan Tubridy on The Late Late Show.

As much as John delighted in seeing his beloved county go all the way this year, he himself was thrilled to take the Liam MacCarthy off Declan Hannon.
