Bernard was the original Dub Superstar
ALAN Brogan is back training with the Dubs. But the Brogan Boys will never be as fit as the Da, Bernard Senior.
The Dublin legend was the Irish Sports Superstar back in 1980. Footage of the event will be shown on Second Captain's Live on RTE 2 tomorrow night (10.pm).
The event featured top athletes undertaking many different sporting disciplines.
Jimmy Magee hosted the show and Brendan O'Reilly was on commentary.
Bernard went on to represent Ireland at the World Superstar Championship.
Pat Spillane was the first winner of the Irish competition in 1979.

AHEAD OF THE POSSE
THE wise Dubs didn't use the car park beside St Tiernach's Park on Sunday.
Cars are not allowed to leave that car park until twenty minutes after the final whistle.
They just wouldn't be able to get through the town as the crowds left the ground.
So those with a little local knowledge parked away from the stadium, with the nose pointing for home.
