Dublin have breakfast under the Stars

THE Dublin senior camogie team had the best view in the country last Sunday morning.

They trained at the home of Stars of Erin in Glencullen.

And there was an open invitation for all to meet the players.

It was announced live on national radio, courtesy of one of the club's top names, Pauric Lodge.

Shane O'Brien, John Treacy, Michael O'Grady, Tony Barron and the rest of the Dublin management crew were delighted with the occasion.

Also on hand was the team's ambassador, Danny Sutcliffe.

They are used to seeing the big names in Glencullen.

Last year, Ronnie Delany arrived to turn the sod on the new clubhouse.

Ronnie won gold in the 1956 Olympics. He could have done his altitude training in these scenic parts.

The club have the highest pitch in Ireland. And the view has never been better. The juvenile river is flowing strongly.

The Stars were formed in 1903. They played for years behind the famous Johnny Foxe's pub before buying their own ground in 1998.

And they rolled out the blue carpet for the grateful Dubs.
