Christie could call it a day...

Byline: PAUL KEANE

HE HASN'T gone away you know - although Paddy Christie may not be around for too much longer.

In fact, there's every chance that one of Dublin's greatest ever full-backs could bring down the curtain on his career today.

The 36-year old former Dubs captain has been an unused sub so far in the Leinster club championship. Ballymun coach Ken Robinson insists he's not simply there on sentiment and could be brought on today.

But after recently becoming manager of top Meath side Dunshaughlin, a loss would surely end Christie's playing days.

Robinson said: "I honestly can't answer that one. But he's available to play, 100 per cent. And I can tell you it's not a token thing either.

"He's worked very hard this year. The sort of fella that Paddy is, he wouldn't want any sort of tokenism either. He'll be one of the 29 available for selection."
