THE call to honour the legendary Kevin Heffernan arose at last night's Dublin GAA County Convention in Parnell Park.

The request was made to mark his life-long contribution in an appropriate manner.

The impact of the former Dublin hurling manager, Anthony Daly, was hailed by Seán Shanley, Gerry Harrington and Larry McVeigh.

John Costello paid tribute to the retired Dublin hurler, Stephen Hiney. "He was always a gentleman to deal with it.

"He played through the lean years. It was great he eventually got success."

Michael O'Grady expressed his concern for player welfare. "I know a young player who is with seven different teams," explained Michael.

Tom Rock agreed "that players are being dragged all over the place" while adding that no championship games should ever be moved out of Croke Park to facilitate concerts or other codes.
