Come Here To Me has friends in all circles, and this should appeal to some of our readers. The latest issue of Blue And Navy, the Dublin GAA fanzine, is available now. You’ll find it in Easons and from a newspaper vender or two on O’ Connell Street (the better option of course)

While the issue has a special focus on Jason Sherlock and his Dublin career, it also includes the usual commentary and great focus on Dublin GAA history and broader Dublin life.

If you’re one of our League of Ireland regulars, you may be wondering who this Jason Sherlock fella is. Well, it’s the same Jason Sherlock who did time in our League.

To most Dubs, outside the Friday Night Club, he is known mainly as the last link to that Dublin team of 1995.
