In ómós Anton O’Toole
Uachtarn CLG John Horan has paid tribute to the late Dublin footballer Anton OToole, who passed away after a brave battle with illness this morning at the age of 68.
The Uachtarn said: "The Dublin team of the 70s was responsible for breathing new life into the GAA in the Capital. That team created a surge of interest and popularity in Gaelic games in Dublin that has gone from strength to strength right through to the present day.
"Anton O'Toole was an integral part of that iconic team. A great player, a great sportsman and a great ambassador for club and county.
"He had an army of football admirers throughout Dublin but, also far beyond, and our thoughts are with his family and many friends who mourn the loss of the Templeogue Synge St and Dublin GAA legend.
