Dual future: five of dublin's brightest talents

Emmet ó Conghaile: The Lucan Sarsfields youngster was on both minor hurling and football panels last year and is on them again in 2011.

Displayed all his potential in a challenge match against Armagh minor footballers last year, scoring 0-5 from midfield. Also plays in the midfield/half-forward area for the minor hurlers.

Cormac Costello

The Whitehall Colmcille dual star is a member of both the Dublin minor hurling and football squads. He starred in last year's minor hurling championship, shooting 2-1 against Antrim and 0-3 against Clare in the All-Ireland semi-final. He is also a very capable, rangy and pacy footballer.

Ciarán Kilkenny

A huge star of the Castleknock team that won the All-Ireland Féile na Gael. His promise as a hurler is well known but he is also an adept footballer, top free-taker and can score off either left or right foot. He scored 1-8 against Louth in the minor football championship last year.

Ross Mullins

Showed great form in the minor football league for Dessie Farrell's squad and also excelled for Dublin North in the Leinster Colleges' hurling championship. Right from the age of 14, Mullins has been pulling off double championship feats with his club Castleknock, college and county.

Eric Lowndes

The St Peregrine's youngster has impressed for the minor footballers in this year's Leinster championship, playing at wing-forward in their win over Westmeath which meant that he missed a recent minor hurling challenge against Cork. In fact, Dublin played that game without their five dual players and were well beaten.
