Fresh from their All-Ireland winning exploits six days earlier, Dublin football stars Diarmuid Connolly and Con O'Callaghan were back in action for the St. Vincent's and Cuala senior hurlers on Saturday.
Connolly started at midfield for Vins in their Dublin SHC third round clash with Kilmacud Crokes at Parnell Park, but was sent off on a second yellow card with 19 minutes remaining as the Marino men succumbed to a 2-13 to 0-23 defeat. However, they had already qualified for the quarter-finals.

Cuala v St Brigid's
Lucan Sarsfields v Ballyboden St Enda's
