Being at home and today’s announcement of the All Stars has got me thinking about a team of the best Dublin players I have seen since I began following the Boys in Blue back in the early 70s.
This is my selection,
- Stephen Cluxton.
- Mick Holden. 3. Rory O’Carroll. 4. Robbie Kelleher.
- James McCarthy. 6. Kevin Moran. 7.Paul Curran.
- Brian Mullins. 9. Brian Fenton.
- Diarmuid Connolly. 11. Ciaran Kilkenny. 12. David Hickey.
- Dean Rock. 14. Jimmy Keaveney. 15. Anton O’Toole.
My principal subs would include, in the backs, Paddy Christie, Mick Kennedy and Mick Fitzsimons, at midfield, Bernard Brogan senior and Brian Howard. In the forwards, Ciaran Duff, Con O’Callaghan and Alan Brogan.
