No talk of a Vincent's hat-trick yet

ROUND 1

ST VINCENT'S v NAOMH OLAF

(Chanel, Today, 5.30)

THE original date was rained off at the Parnell Park Palladium.

Now the show moves up the Malahide Road to the home of Parnell's.

Vincent's are the biggest of favourites. They are the two-in-a-row champions.

But in Pairc Naomh Uinsionn, nobody is talking about a three-card trick. Na Fianna were the last club to achieve that accolade back in 2001. The mighty Ballymun Kickhams await the winners of this one.

Shane Smith is managing Olaf's. They are doing nicely in Division 3. Last Sunday, David Byrne (inset) shared the same Dublin dressing-room as Diarmuid Connolly (pictured above) and Michael Savage.

Olaf's are sponsored by Merrion Fleet. The Sandyford Saints won't spare the petrol.

VERDICT: St Vincent's
