Dublin visit paradise to sample Celtic facilities
Dublinfootballers have availed of the break in the Allianz Football League next weekend to travel to Glasgow for a training run at Celtic's ultra-modern facilities, writes Martin Breheny.
They took up an offer extended by Celtic manager Neil Lennon to Pat Gilroy last month.
Lennon, who played underage football with Armagh, still maintains a keen interest in GAA affairs and was happy to facilitate Dublin.
The trip gives the high-flying Dublin squad, who top the Division 1 table after five straight wins, an opportunity to sample the set-up at a professional soccer club as they begin the next phase of their build-up for the summer campaign.
Meanwhile, there's more bad news for struggling Meath, who will be without David Bray for the season. A younger brother of Stephen, he made a big impact in 2009 championship but missed out last year due to a knee problem.
Manager Seamus McEnaney was hoping to restore him to the squad in the coming weeks but he has suffered yet another knee injury.
