Alan Brogan has intimated that he is ready for at least one more season with the Dublin footballers despite his injury hell in 2013.
The eldest of the Brogan brothers was on the Dublin squad that won the All-Ireland title, but he was unable to play due to pelvis and hamstring complaints.
Now fit and playing regularly at club level, Brogan has his eye on a return to county football.
“It would be nice to get back on the Dublin team. I wouldn’t like to finish the way the last year and a half have gone,” he said.
“I was harboring hopes all right of playing this year but a couple of things went against me, a few of the injuries didn’t help.
“I probably hadn’t played enough football to warrant Jim Gavin putting me into the game. But it was great to be part of it and see the lads winning Sam Maguire again.
“I haven’t really thought about next year yet. We’ve a couple of games left with the club to finish out this year and we want to get through them and hopefully put in a couple of performances and I’ll know then if my body is okay going into next year and I’ll worry about that then.
