2018 is the 60th anniversary of Dublin’s 1958 minor football All-Ireland win over Mayo and Mearnog club stalwart Mick Kissane was part of the winning team.
To mark the occasion on Saturday last, a special edition of the usual Social Football was run. Social footballers from the club born in Dublin took on a selection from the rest of the country in a 12 aside game and befitting the occasion, Mick, still going strong, captained the Dublin side for the day. An entertaining and fun game played in glorious sunshine finished level.
Check out the photo to see the stalwarts who played on the day!!
