The midfielder's midfielder. Wins ball and gives it simply.

Magical Mossy, still producing the hits. A Dublin footballing icon.

SUBSTITUTES

Seán Currie (Ballymun Kickhams): Assured presence. Made one of the saves of the season from Ruairi Trainor in the Sunday final.

Gavin McArdle (St Sylvester's): Quality, inventive player. Brings zest to the job.

Ross McConnell (St Oliver Plunkett's/ER): Back fielding with the Lords of the Ring. And showing his undoubted calibre.

Ryan Basquel (Ballyboden St Enda's): Busy, bustling forward. Hit some memorable scores.

Ciarán Dorney (St Vincent's): Crisp finisher. Always ready to seize on the crumbs of a mince-pie.

Mark Vaughan (Kilmacud Crokes): A show-stopper. So many times the MVP. Great to see him back on the big stage.
