Team of '96 re-union

Brian Talty sent me this picture from the lads re-union this week. Great to see so many of the lads still around and involved. Attached is a piece we featured last July to commemorate the win.

The Team of '96 - 20 years on

 — last modified Jul 16, 2016 01:55 PM — History
Brian Talty reminded me to mention that it was 20 years since Syls won our only ever Dublin Senior Football Championship. I took a look at my archives, courtesy of Brian Colgan a few years ago, and was struck by the number of lads still very involved in coaching, some still playing, a great tribute to St Sylvesters.. Have a root through the pictures and news clippings, pretty cool stuff. I think Talty said he was going to buy a pint some evening, maith fear, mines a Guinness.
