What a ball from Diarmuid Connolly!
Dublin football is coming back down to earth after completing a remarkable three-in-a-row. Life goes back to normal as the county quarter-finals take place between today and tomorrow in Parnell Park.
First up, St Vincent’s take on St Sylvester’s in Donnycarney, as the 2014 All-Ireland champions look to push on and defend their title.
Buoyed by a wealth of county talent, it would take a brave man to bet against them.
Diarmuid Connolly returns to the big ball after representing the northside club in the hurling championship last weekend, and he sent a ridiculously good ball up to his forwards in the first half.

It immediately brought up the memory of this pass 11 months ago.

Plays like this act as a reminder just how good Connolly is, and how remarkable it is that Jim Gavin had the riches at his disposal that he had the luxury of not starting him in the All-Ireland final against Mayo.
