Brogan not going anywhere


Bernard Brogan has no intention of bringing his inter-county career to an end and has set his sights on a fifth All-Ireland medal.

Brogan was dropped for Saturday's All-Ireland SFC final replay at Croke Park but came off the bench to kick a point as Dublin defeated Mayo 1-15 to 1-14.

It was Dublin's second successive win in the All-Ireland final and Brogan's fourth win in all and the 32-year-old is hoping to make it three-in-a-row in 2017.

"I'll play until I feel I've nothing extra to add and there's others who can add more," Brogan said. "I still think I have something to add to the team. So no, I'm hanging around. I'm not going anywhere, unless Jim has other ideas."

Brogan's indifferent performance in the drawn match saw him dropped to the bench for Saturday's replay along with Michael Darragh Macauley and Davy Byrne.

All three came on to influence the outcome of the game and, while disappointed not to start Brogan had no problem with having to start on the bench.

"I'm long enough in the tooth to know what it takes to win an All-Ireland. It's a team game," Brogan explained.

"You look at us over the years and the impact we've had off the bench - the likes of Kevin McManamon and fellas like that. This year, that was the role I had to take. They way teams are playing against Dublin now it's hard for an inside forward to have a massive impact.

"It's all about legs. It's all about movement. And the other lads were coming a bit better coming into the replay. Paddy (Andrews) obviously had a great day the last day. He was worth his place. So, that's football.

"I knew I was going to get a few minutes and I had to try and make an impact when I did. So it was just great to be involved.

"It's great. A fourth All-Ireland. I never would have dreamed of it when I was a kid."
