The DUBS off to Le Manga for a weeks intensive training (including 3 Raheny players Ciaran Whelan, David Henry and Donal Ryan).

Dubs short on experience for Offaly trip

Congrats to our own Neil Curley who will co-manage the Dubs this Sunday. Thanks to Neil who invited along 2 Raheny Juvenile players for the day out with the Dubs.


A very inexperienced Dublin side will begin their OByrne Cup title defence against Offaly in Tullamore this Sunday (2.0).
With the Dublin squad heading to La Manga for warm-weather training the likes of Declan Lally and Declan OMahony will bring senior intercounty experience to the team while Cian OSullivan (Kilmacud Crokes) is free to play as his ban applies to club action only following his sending off against Rhode in the Leinster Club final.
John OBrien will carry a lot of the scoring burden for the Dubs and will be hoping to repeat some of his O'Byrne Cup heroics of last season. Eoghan OGara is another forward Dublin will look to, this summer he played a major role in Dublin winning the All-Ireland JFC title. Declan OShaughnessy, younger brother of Stephen, is also included in the Dublin forward line.
The team will be captained by Gary OConnell (Erins Isle) with the team managed by Mick Bohan and Raheny's Neil Curley.
