How many Dubs would join Heffo in best ever team?

THEY were talking the other day about the Football Team of the Century. Only one Dub, Kevin Heffernan, was picked.

No place at the Inn for Brian Mullins. The team was chosen in 1984 and the Stewards Enquiry is still going on.

In 1999, they selected the Football Team of the Millennium. There were three changes from the Team of the Century, but Heffo was still the only Dub in town. If the judges sat down tomorrow and selected the best Football Team of all-time, how many more Dubs would get in? Stephen Cluxton for starters?

Dan O'Keeffe (Kerry); Enda Colleran (Galway), Paddy O'Brien (Meath), Seán Flanagan (Mayo); Seán Murphy (Kerry), JJ O'Reilly (Cavan), Stephen White (Louth); Mick O'Connell (Kerry), Jack O'Shea (Kerry); Seán O'Neill (Down), Seán Purcell (Galway), Pat Spillane (Kerry); Mikey Sheehy (Kerry), Tommy Langan (Mayo), Kevin Heffernan (Dublin).
