DUBLIN football management have allayed fears over Paul Flynn following reports that a groin injury may rule him out for some or all of their 2015 Championship campaign.

Flynn underwent surgery on a condition known as Gilmore's Groin on January 5tand made his seasonal comeback on March 7 as a half-time substitute against Tyrone in Croke Park.

He subsequently started each of Dublin's next four League matches but played no part in their Division 1 final win over Cork.

Reports over the weekend suggested that Flynn had contracted osteitis pubis, the injury which forced Alan Brogan out for an entire season but a member of management has quashed any fears over the Fingallians man's fitness.

The Herald also understands that Flynn also took a full part in Dublin training over the weekend ahead of next Sunday's Leinster SFC opener against Longford in Croke Park.
