Now you can take a bite out of Bernard Brogan: burger named in tribute to Dubs star
Forget clean eating and protein shakes - it seems GAA star Bernard Brogan has taken a break from his strict athlete's diet to indulge in his namesake burger.
Fresh from their All-Ireland win on Sunday, the Dublin sharpshooter was joined by team-mate Paul Flynn in trendy city centre restaurant Cleaver East to tuck into the eatery's 'Bernard Brogan' burger on Monday evening.
The meaty feast - created by head chef Oliver Dunne - is certainly not for the faint-hearted, made up of a pork burger with braised pork ribs, coleslaw, Dubliner cheese, pickled carrot and a boxty potato cake bun.
Dunne explained to the Herald the dish is named after Brogan as it's based on a classic Dubliner dish - with an alternative version of some of the elements.
"The burger is based on the traditional Dublin coddle," he said. "Every month we have a new 'pornburger'. We put two burgers up for a public vote on Facebook. This month we had a Bernard Brogan burger against a Colm Cooper burger - Bernard won the vote."
Brogan and Flynn didn't hang around the Temple Bar restaurant for long, however, as they ventured to Coolock later that night with the rest of the Dubs squad as captain Stephen Cluxton brought Sam Maguire to his home club, Parnell's.
