The former Dublin footballer and four time All-Ireland winner Brian Mullins sadly passed away yesterday at the age of 68. He was much loved and won the All-Ireland in 1974, ’76, ’77 and ’83, as well as nine Leinster titles, two National League titles and two All-Stars. He was regarded by many, as one of the best players to ever play the game.

Devastating to hear Brian Mullins has passed.
A titan of so many Dublin childhoods.
A standard-setting hero.
He gifted a rush of Sky Blue euphoria to a grey 1970s town.
Among Anna Livia's supreme gladiators.
He joins Anton O'Toole in a celestial Croker.
