So did I, my first football hero. Living at the Quay, my friends and I would stand outside John Murphy’s house in St Gerard’s Sq on a Sunday morning just to get a “Hello Son” from Jimmy. He never disappointed! We loved Jimmy, proper footballer. Worldwide recognition of this great man was long overdue. A little tear in my eye this morning.

He always did something magic in a match . There is a story about the teak tough famous Shels centre half Freddie Strahan , did not take prisoners . He was marking Jimmy & thought he would go easy on him , first corner comes across & Jimmy leans down with his pointed bone in shoulder on to Freddie’s shoulder , game on . John Murphy might tell it better.

I was delighted to be a small part of the Jimmy Hasty documentary.I remember Jimmy very well and had some good crack with him and gerry mc court.The lads that produced the film were great to work with and I'm delighted for them.

I had the privilege of seeing this great player and human being play many, many times.
He always reminded me of a beautiful line from Goldsmith: "And still they gazed and still the wonder grew....."
