Bernard Brogan tweets Shane Walsh interesting proposition regarding Dublin club transfer

Lee Costello

“We’d love to have you Shane.”

Shane Walsh is currently slap bang in the middle of a transfer saga that is turning into Ireland’s version of the Frenkie de Jong debacle with Barcelona and Manchester United.

Of course, there aren’t millions of pounds involved or any untoward behaviour in terms of contracts and non-payments, but the drama and media fuss it has stirred in the GAA is still remarkable.

Following his incredible All-Ireland final performance against Kerry, in which Walsh kicked nine unbelievable points, the ink hadn’t even dried on the back pages applauding his efforts, before the news broke that he wants to transfer from his home club to Dublin’s Kilmacud Crokes.

Kilkerrin-Clonberne currently compete in Galway’s Intermediate division – even with the superb sharp shooter up front – while Crokes just fell short of becoming senior All-Ireland champions earlier this year.

With the possibility of trophies and playing up front with fellow superstar Paul Mannion, you can see why the Tribesman would want to play his football there.

Undoubtedly, the main reason is because he currently lives, works and studies in Dublin city, so the travelling is more than likely beginning to take its toll on him.

With every man, woman and their dog having an opinion on the matter, it was nice to see some comic relief from Dublin legend, Bernard Brogan.

The 2010 Player of the Year took to Twitter and turned on the charm, in an attempt to sway the Galway man to join his own club, St. Oliver Plunketts Eoghan Ruadh.

“We’d love to have you @shane147walsh down in @plunketts_ie, just throwing us into the hat  Myself and @nestysmith13will play one more year if you join!

“@alanbrogan13 said he would dust down boots also.”
Brother of Bernard and fellow former Dublin icon, Alan Brogan, was quick to reply with a stipulation should Walsh be tempted to take the offer.
“You would have to play in the half-forward line though as no slots left in ff line!!!”
All joking aside, Kerry’s Paul Galvin and Dubliner Jason Sherlock were both huge stars who left their clubs to join the Brogans at Plunketts – so who knows?
