Meet the Captains

Either Darren Brennan or Danny Dixon will accept the Richard Barry Cup tomorrow (Sunday) on behalf of their side in the Bradys Skoda sponsored Regional Football Championship Final and in advance of the decider, we got to know the two captains a little better.

 

Find out who is the best trainer, laziest trainer, best game they’ve played in, best game they’ve been at and much more in their player profiles.

 

Tickets for the game are available via the Meath GAA App.
