DUBLIN ALL-IRELAND winning defender Ger Brennan has pulled out of the county’s senior football squad.

Brennan, a key player at centre-back in the triumphant 2013 team, has been plagued by injuries in recent times and his last championship start for Dublin was the 2013 decider against Mayo.

In an official statement released this afternoon, it was confirmed that Brennan will not be involved for the remainder of Dublin’s campaign as the recently crowned Leinster champions turn their attentions to the upcoming All-Ireland series.

“Dublin Senior Footballer Ger Brennan has decided to take a break from football for this summer,” the Dubs said.

The player’s Achilles heel injury has thankfully made steady progress and Ger will, after this extended period of recovery, return to play with his club St Vincents later in the year, and with the county team in 2016.

“The Dublin Senior Football team will continue to provide Ger with the necessary support during his recovery period.”
