Is Paddy Andrews still involved or has he retired? AFAIK he had 7 also before this year.

Paddy was on the pitch during the after match celebrations along with Cian O'Sullivan, who had a hamstring injury.
Both were still involved and on the panel this year, as was Rory O'Carroll. MDMA was a sub yesterday.

This was Paddy's 7th All Ireland senior winner's medal.

Paddy Andrews wasn't in the panel in 2011.

Fair achievement, first off congratulations, I know a lot of sniping goes on on various pages and decent threads are often distorted or destroyed by wums with no genuine interest in football.

Regardless of what people's opinions are on funding or aids off the pitch the truth is the above players are in a unique bracket due to their achievements - so genuinely, hats off.

Can I ask, of the Dublin players listed above, how many played every minute of the respective eight all Ireland finals, I know of Kerry's golden five, injuries prevented a few from lining out in full games and to the best of my knowledge only Oige played in every minute of this 75-86 finals.

How many above played in every minute?

Cluxton and McCarthy for sure. Perhaps Fitzsimons but cant be sure. O'Sullivan plagued with injuries.

Fitzy had a year or two under Gavin when he wasn't first choice, but going from memory. I think we went Rory, Jonny and Philly in maybe a couple of finals, certainly 1, before Rory went on his jollies.

Cluxton the only player to play every minute of every one of the 8 finals.

James McCarthy was black carded in one of the 2016 finals iirc.

Fitzsimons have always been first choice.

Not so Mes, 2013 + 2016 Jonny, Rory, Philly were the starting backs.

You're dead right of course.

My post should have read 'Fitzsimons hasn't always been first choice'

Which is mad when you think how important he has been in recent years, even in 2011, I always wondered why Jim never took a shine to him early on.

Think he didn't even make the match day squad in 13, fair play to him he hung in there that spell and came out a legend of the game.

Remember Kevin O Brien, was knocking around to, he just disappeared after a bad injury I think playing Singerson, never really came back. Prob coincided with Davy coming through.

Kevin O'Brien got roasted in the 2013 semi-final against Kerry in the first half. Philly on at half time to soften the Kerry forwards coughs and the rest is history. O'Brien got a bad injury not long after and never really got back into it.

I think Fitzsimons lost out under Jim initially because Jim felt he wasn't a good enough ball player so the likes of Cooper were seen as the better fits for the type of ball Jim wanted to play.

Fitz also had a couple of bad games in the league during 2013 as well which put him behind in the pecking order a bit.

I think Cluxton stands alone here. Mccarthy went off injured in 11 and think he black carded in another. Don't think Fitzsimmons played all either. Cluxton started and finished every final. A great feat for a great man.

Some achievement alright.
Hard to believe it would happen for all those barren years. We're blessed with the success these players have worked so hard to deliver.
Hats of to them all.
