Dessie's Diamond Eoin is top class

EOIN Murchan is the overall Footballer of the Year at UCD.

It's quite an accolade for the young Na Fianna man.

This Saturday, he'll be hoping to help Dublin reach the All-Ireland U21 Football Championship final when they play Tipperary in the semi-final in Tullamore (4.0).

Tipp had a prized victory over Cork in last week's exciting Munster final. Only a point in it.

Eoin is studying economics and finance at UCD. He's a fabulous defender with basketball hands.

He delivered an excellent performance as the Dubs beat Kildare in the Leinster U21 final. Last year, he helped the Blues lift the Leinster Minor crown as they overcame the Lilywhites.

Eoin has exceptional balance. He has a great footballing brain, athleticism, acceleration and heart. He also has a fantastic temperament, and he's a terrific man-marker. They are proud of his achievements on the Mobhi Road and at College. Davy Billings knows a good footballer when he sees one. And Eoin certainly fits the Belfield Bill.
