Tougher than David Haye: Dublin star Cahill played with broken toe
One of Dublin’s All-Ireland stars, Barry Cahill, has revealed that he played in the win over Kerry with a broken toe on his kicking right foot.
The Castleknock man broke his little toe during the first half of the semi-final win over Donegal and was told after the game it would take five weeks to heal. With the showdown with the Kingdom just three weeks away, a solution had to be found and Cahill received it from Anthony Foy of Evoshield.
Evoshield manufactures protective clothing for players and a specially moulded foam cast allowed Cahill to play almost in hour in Dublin’s historic victory.
“I was very fortunate that I was able to get the cast off him,” said Cahill of his favour from Foy.
As were Dublin, as Cahill put in an epic shift in the Dublin engine room.
Now if only David Haye had Anthony Foy’s number, he may have been able to beat Wladimir Klitschko.
