After his appearance on Laochra Gael, David Brady has received warm words of praise from people all over Ireland.
The Mayo star was on with Off The Ball last month to talk about all things Mayo and his career - he spoke about his daughter winding him up about supporting the Dubs.
“She was at the National League final last year - her first day - and she still talks about the hotdogs, the fireworks and the green and red of Mayo.
“That’s when it all came to her and next week she was down in Castleknock GAA saying, ‘I’m going to GAA, Daddy.’
“She was expecting cups and streamers and the whole lot, but it’s what it all represents and the positivity it has for young people,” he said.
Whatever the outcome though, he’s happy that young people in Dublin get to see a great time at their peak.
“I think it’s absolutely fantastic that every child in Dublin is getting to see this glory era and Alan Brogan said he’s going to be buying my young fella his first Dublin jersey,” Brady laughed.

David Brady comes across very well in his #LaochraGael has his opinions but no doubt a tough footballer, refreshing attitude too of “once it’s gone you move on it’s just football “
