'Dublin Is The Capital Of Our Country' - Ger Brennan Rejects Criticism Of St. Vincent's
By PJ Browne Updated

Given the influx of inter-county footballers from outside of Dublin into the county's club game in recent years, it might not be long until we see a transfer window introduced. Perhaps, at some point, we will see the bombast of a Premier League-style transfer deadline day.

After winning the Leinster Championship with a seven-point win over Offaly champions Rhode on Sunday, former Dublin footballer Ger Brennan answered criticism which has been directed at St. Vincent's.

Vincent's count among their players Enda Varley from Mayo, Lorcan Smyth from Westmeath, Fiachra Breathnach from Galway and Brendan Egan from Sligo.

Egan has been with the northside club for a number of years while the other three joined earlier this year.

Brennan told RTÉ that the club has never had a policy of recruiting players and those from outside Dublin who play with Vincent's all live and work in the area.

Dublin is the capital of our country, there's over a million people there living and working.

If a guy is living and working in the area and he wants to play Gaelic football, then why not?

There’s definitely no policy nor has there ever been a policy within Vincent’s to be recruiting players or chasing players.

You've Enda Varley there, Lorcan Smyth, Fiachra Breathnach and Brendan has been playing with us for years and years. All those guys are living and working in the area. They've added quite a bit to the squad this year.
