Happy New Year to each and everyone one of you. A new year and a brand new season for everyone to enjoy.

And what better way to start things of than the annual Dub Stars Challenge. Parnell Park will host proceedings this afternoon in association with Craobh Chiarain GAA Club, and a big crowd as always is expected. Best to get down as early as you can for a good vantage point.

Ger Cunningham’s Dublin Hurling panel will line out at 12:30pm to face this year’s Hurling Dub Stars selection, and at 2:00pm it will be turn of Jim Gavin’s football panel facing the best Dublin club players of the year.

This is the perfect opportunity to see current and some new Dublin stars from both hurling and football up close and personal.

But for anyone that can’t make it along this afternoon, we’ll be there to cover all the action with live score updates on www.twitter.com/wearedub. And as always you can get the complete run down on both matches after the event right here and on www.facebook.com/wearedub.
