Darren Fay (born 11 April 1976 in Meath) is a former successful Meath Gaelic Footballer. He is regarded the latest in a long line of Great Meath Full Backs, following the likes of Mick Lyons, Jack Quinn, Paddy O'Brien & Tommy "The Boiler" McGuinness. He plays club football for Trim. He came to prominence in 1996 when he won an All Ireland senior medal in his first season as a Meath regular first team player. In 1999 he won his second All Ireland medal. He is also the holder of 3 Leinster Senior medals. Darren has won 3 All Star awards. For the 2006 season Darren made himself unavailable for the Meath team but he returned to the Meath panel for the 2007 season. On July 23, 2008 Fay confirmed his retirement after a shocking defeat to Limerick. Starred in the major motion picture 'Braveheart' as an extra, even though he was considered for the starring role but Mel Gibson declined to use him after a lengthy fist fight in a local bar. Darren has been considered for a role in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) after he offered to fight Diarmuid Conolly outside Supermacs on O'Connell street at 4am. Later in life Darren was accepted for a PHD scholarship in Maynooth University due to his exceptional Chemistry Write Ups during his 1st year science course. He was given his BSC Degree after just 2 months after a private discussion with Prof Phillip Nolan where Dr. Nolan re appeared with 3 black eyes. Darrens hobbies include walks on the beach and needle craft.
