Eamonn Dillon, the Dublin hurler, is talking about growing up in Cabra when an incident from his teens springs to mind. "Me and me mates were up in Ashington, that is just up the road, we had our hurls out, it was a Saturday evening, and the guards came round, took the hurls off us. Said they could be used as weapons."

This wasn't great timing as they had a game the next day. They contacted their manager, Nial 'Hubba' Brady.

'The guards are after taking the hurls off us.'
