Brian O'Driscoll pleas with Alan Brogan to play another year with Dublin as Twitter hails their Hill hero
He only came on the pitch in the 66th minute but the evergreen Alan Brogan was the man who used all his experience and composure to score Dublin's insurance point in their All Ireland win over Kerry today.
The elder of the Brogan brothers will go down as a Dublin legend when he hangs up his boots and indeed, many believe he may make that decision after this All Ireland win. Dublin players have been pleading with the marquee forward and now Brian O'Driscoll has reached out to urge him to hang on.
BOD took to Twitter to say: "Congrats @alanbrogan13 on a terrific career! Surely you won't do the dog on it like some of us???! #onemoreyear."
O'Driscoll certainly wasn't on his own in wanting Brogan to continue wearing the blue jersey as fans took to Twitter to hail their hero.

The joy on Alan Brogan's face at the end was brilliant. If he decides to bow out of #gaa then what a way to do it.— Keith H (@maclaithimh) September 20, 2015
