Cllr Lynam passes motion to recognise achievements of local GAA star Paul Flynn

16 January, 2015

Fingal Sinn Féin councillor Phil Lynam was delighted to have his motion was passed at the area council meeting yesterday to honour Fingallians GAA player and four time All Star Paul Flynn.

Speaking after the meeting Cllr Lynam said:

“I am thrilled that the local area will look into acknowledging the achievements of local player Paul Flynn. This is a tremendous accomplishment for Fingallians and for all of Fingal especially since two of the awards were won in years when Dublin did not win the All Ireland.”

This motion aimed to recognise his unique feat of being one of only a handful of people who have won four successive All Star awards and the only non- Kerryman to do this. Paul Flynn and his teammates are amateurs who receive no pay for the efforts they make, yet they bring so much joy and passion to the people of Fingal especially during the tough period of austerity.

I would also like to take this moment to mention the passing of Andy Kettle, Chairperson of the Dublin GAA, a great Fingal man, I would like to see as his legacy more support for Fingal GAA from the council especially for his beloved County Fingal hurling team.”
