Brennan to take break from Dubs duty
Dublin defender Ger Brennan has decided to take a break from inter-county football following a run of injuries that saw him sidelined for Jim Gavin's side.
Brennan was an integral part of the Dublin 2013 All-Ireland-winning team but an Achilles heel injury has meant he has not stared a Championship game since.
The Dublin County Board released a statement yesterday, saying: "Dublin senior footballer Ger Brennan has decided to take a break from football for this summer.
"The player's Achilles heel injury has thankfully made steady progress and Ger will, after this extended period of recovery, return to play with his club St Vincent's later in the year, and with the county team in 2016.
"The Dublin Senior Football team will continue to provide Ger with the necessary support during his recovery period."
As well as winning Sam Maguire twice, Brennan also helped Dublin powerhouse St Vincent's to win two All-Ireland club titles in 2008 and 2014.
