Students can power past Synge St

HE'S Dublin's new Nelson's Pillar. Eoghan O'Gara's Dublin shirt began to feel very comfortable this summer. But he's been around for a while.

A couple of years ago, along with Denis Bastick, he helped Dublin to their first All-Ireland Junior Football title since 1960 - they'll both be key players for Synger tonight.

UCD needed two late goals to beat Thomas Davis. Ciarán Lyng and John O'Loughlin got them. Donie Kingston was also playing.

Following the victory, the UCD players remained on the O'Toole Park pitch for quite a while, renewing their determination to have a right cut at this Dublin Championship.
