Paddy Bates went on to win two Railway Cup medals with Laois in 1928 & 1929. Spelling of names above is that recorded at the time.

Note: Jim Hannify and Tom Murphy from Drumlish were selected on the original starting XV for the All-Ireland final vs Mayo, while Paddy Loughrey and Mike Joe Quinn from Drumlish were listed in reserve. A dispute arose around team selection which led to Jim, Tom, Paddy and Mike Joe withdrawing from the panel on the eve of the match against Mayo. The details around the dispute are well recorded elsewhere, but suffice to say there were no real winners and with the benefit of hindsight, everyone involved might have wished events had transpired otherwise. Comóradh an Chéid in 1987 put it best in describing the saga as follows… “it was silly then, and even more foolish now, to blame anyone”.
