Dublin West Bye-election candidate Councillor David McGuinness has described the victory of All-Ireland Champions Dublin as ‘unbelievable’. David stood with an army of Dubs fans on Hill 16 and watched the historic victory unfold. McGuinness says ‘Kerry was a mighty opposition but Dublin fought tooth and nail to secure the 16-year wait for Sam Maguire’s return to the capital.’
Cllr McGuinness said: ‘I recall being in St. Patrick’s School, Corduff, in 1995 when Jason Sherlock walked into the PE hall with the Sam Maguire cup raised over his head. The excitement and amazement that day is something that has stayed with me.
‘I hope the cup can visit schools again in Blanchardstown, Castleknock, Swords, and Mulhuddart to let students be a part of the celebrations.
‘I want to in particular to congratulate Dublin 15 natives Alan Brogan, Bernard Brogan, Paul Brogan, and Barry Cahill on their momentous achievement. Dublin 15 is very proud of them and their victory.
‘The courage and team spirit displayed yesterday is something that all Dubs can be proud of.’
