VIDEO: Anna Geary Makes The Toughest Journey Of All For The Love Of Milford Camogie

The Toughest journey begins with a single step.

For Anna Geary, the now retired Cork camogie captain and long-serving Milford club servant, the quest for another All-Ireland title goes on.

Twice a week the camogie legend travels from Dublin to Cork on a six-hour marathon all for the love of the game and her parish.

Straight from work, Anna has no time to waste as she embarks on a journey familiar to thousands of club players across the country.

She could easily say no; she has her All-Ireland medals, she's now living far from home and her knee, racked with tendinitis, screams at her to rest and recover.

But Geary knows that the pain in her knee tells her just one thing: keep going.

When she is on the field she gets to meet friends and family, she's part of the greatest thing in her life, the one thing that can make every sacrifice worth it: the chance of walking out in Croke Park for an All-Ireland final.

As Anna explains herself: "There's too much invested in it now to give up".

Milford face Galway's Killimor in the 2016 AIB All-Ireland senior camogie club final on March 6th, and Anna would be willing to travel for 24 hours if it meant the club would secure a victory.

This is not just Geary's story of sacrifice, of dedication, and of the hundreds of lonely miles between Dublin and the Cork/Limerick border.

This is a story of every club player, of every club, of The Toughest journey everyone takes on the road to the greatest glory. Take a look below.
