By Cian O'Connell

"I have built lifelong friendships - forged on what we call our battlefield. I will cherish all these memories, and speak about them for a lifetime but not without mentioning those who raised me upward and onward along the way - whose support I couldn't have done without."

Brogan acknowledged the powerful role occupied by his family and the work carried out by Dublin managers Paul Caffrey, Pat Gilroy, and Jim Gavin.
