Alan Brogan retired from inter-county football on a high at the end of last season. His club Oliver Plunkett's have produced a lovely video showcasing some of the highlights of his inter-county career. Bernard tweeted it out this afternoon with the message '17 years in blue.'
The elder Brogan made his inter-county debut in the 2002 season. He went on to win eleven Leinster titles and three All-Irelands. He was named Footballer of the Year for the 2011 season.
Brogan's Dublin career spanned two eras. The early portion of his career was characterised by supremacy within Leinster but repeated failures at All-Ireland level. The latter part of his career was a period of glorious success.
At this year's All-Ireland homecoming, Brogan reminded Dublin supporters and fellow players that times weren't always like this.
As the crowd shouted 'one more year', he said that he 'played for many years when there was no All-Irelands coming back here' and said 'I'll enjoy this one for now'.
