Mattie Kenny brought his Dublin team to Kilbarrack for the annual Dublin Bus/Herald Dubs Stars match on Saturday at Naomh Barróg and selected a youthful looking side for the clash.

Dublin right half-back Davy Keogh had a great match, capping his display with two neat points.

Dublin took a hold of the game from the early stages and led by 1-9 to 0-5 at the break. The goal came on 12 minutes - Glenn Whelan created it with a crisp pass to full-forward Oisín O'Rorke, who did the rest.

Dublin almost had a second goal 10 minutes into the second-half. Billy Ryan drilled in a shot from the right, but goalkeeper Dare de Poire made a remarkable save.
