WATCH: St Brigids' Andrews senses "real buzz"


Dublin forward Paddy Andrews says there is a "real buzz around" ahead of his club St Brigids' Dublin GAA Club Championship clash with local rivals Castleknock at Parnell Park on Saturday.

St Brigids lost 2-13 1-10 to Ballymun Kickhams in their Group D opener at Parnell Park, while Castleknock thumped Clontarf 2-19 0-9 in their first fixture.

The pivotal game in the four-team group stage is live on eir sport 1 [throw-in 4pm].

Despite a disappointing start to their Championship campaign, the four-time All Ireland winner said he is really enjoying his spell back at the club.

The 29-year-old, who scored two points and won the first-half penalty that Philip Ryan converted against Ballymun, told eir sport: "You don't get to play as much as probably in the past so to get a four-week block to come back here an train and play with the lads is great.

"We will just try to be a little bit sharper around the pitch on Saturday.

"It is going to be a huge game particularly against our local rivals, but everyone is looking forward to it. There is a great buzz around.

Andrews will be back for the Dubs in the Leinster Championship in May where they have a bye to the quarter-finals and await the winners of Offaly and Wicklow. 

Andrews added: "All the guys are really enjoying it and it gives you a little break from Dublin, which can be a bit of bubble at times.

"I will be back in Dublin in the next couple of week to prepare for the Leinster Championship, but everyone has a real pep in their step here.

"It is obviously a really different set-up coming back from a successful team like Dublin back to the club, but I'm really looking forward to it."

St Brigids take on Castleknock in the Dublin GAA Club Football Championship on Saturday, 28 April, live on eir Sport 1 at 4pm. The game between St Vincents and Na Fianna is also live on eir Sport 1, with a 5.45pm start.
