Player Profile – Edel Brennan

As James Brown put it, ‘This is a man’s world. But it wouldn’t be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl.’ So it’s about time Ranelagh Gaels’ Player Profile spotlight pointed at the club’s 2010 Dublin Junior E Championship winning ladies captain.

Edel Brennan says that Liam puts all her team’s three managers in the shade, claims that she’ll do whatever Denis Doolan tells her and we reckon with her basketball skills she could teach even LeBron James a thing or two.

The Gaels player that should take over as Taoiseach and why: Anyone one of our ladies could do the job but it will take a lady to do it right.

You’ve just won the €7,300 top prize in the Ranelagh Gaels Club Lotto – you spend the money on: A team holiday when we win the championship in 2011.
