Here are some of the plaudits for the St Vincent’s man that have been posted on Twitter…
The most talented footballer I’ve seen. Pleasure to play on the same team as him. Congrats on a phenomenal career Dermo. 👏 https://t.co/tiUc93mYQu— Barry Cahill (@barrycahilldub) October 1, 2020
I've watched @dermoc123 setting the bar time and time again. His football skills, knowledge of the game, selflessness to bring players into the game, attitude towards winning and so much more.... It was a pleasure to wear the county jersey with you 💙 https://t.co/ZG2L1O7Eqh— EamonFennell (@EamonFennell) October 1, 2020

I loved this point so much. Off the shoulder at pace and glide it over the bar with the left peg. I’ve actually tried to replicate it in a few club games, put it out for a sideline ball once. https://t.co/igDRl7fOEs— Eamon Mc Gee (@EamonMcGee) October 1, 2020
