Kilmacud Crokes manager Robbie Brennan doesn't think Paul Mannion will play for Dublin again.

The 28-year-old forward's absence was sorely felt this summer when the Dubs relinquished their six-year grip on the Sam Maguire. In yesterday's Dublin SFC final, his four-point haul inspired Crokes to a 1-7 to 1-6 victory over St Jude's.

When asked by the media afterwards if Mannion would be ending his inter-county exile, Brennan replied: "My own opinion? No. 

"I think that's it, I think that's the last you'll see of Paul (for Dublin). I'd say he'll answer that question but I would think that's it.

"What he has done in the game has been absolutely phenomenal for Dublin and now for Kilmacud. I would say he'll just enjoy his football, that's my view. But Paul might have something different on it."
