Martin Breheny: Dublin risk getting egg on faces

So far, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland have not commented but, presumably, in their expanded role as food monitors, they will have noted that Dublin footballers have aligned themselves with Easter eggs this year.

Squad pictures are all over a particular brand, part of the proceeds from which will go to something called the Dublin Players' Foundation.

Dublin supporters will certainly have noticed it and wondered if the players might have felt some egg on their faces after last Saturday's trimming in Castlebar. Commercial sideshows are always attracted to All-Ireland winners, but sometimes you wonder if some lines are best left uncrossed.

They include players posing with models in order to flog Easter eggs, just as the competitive season is really cracking up.
