In Pictures: Legendary Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh Training Group Reunited

Kerrymen, Mayomen, and many from other counties gathered at UCD for a reunion on Wednesday.

They were all part of a group of GAA players who were trained by broadcaster Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh at Belfield between the 1970s and 1990s.

The group included Kerry footballers Jack O'Shea and Mick Spillane, Mayo's Kevin McStay, and Galway All-Ireland winning hurler Brendan Lynskey.

Sportsfile's Piaras Ó Mídheach was there to capture the reunion.
