David Billings 1953 – 2015

“We really had that bond, and that bond was forged by Dave.”

As part of a two part special of AIG’s Dub Club Chronicles, the focus turns to a Dublin Legend, the late David Billings, who sadly passed away in 2015.

A lovable rogue, Dave represented St. Vincent’s, UCD and various Dublin county teams throughout his career.

Credited with transforming UCD’s football programme, Dave’s impact on Dublin GAA will not be forgotten. In honour of Dave’s contribution, the new pitch at Belfield, UCD was named Dave Billings Park where the senior footballers took on UCD at the official opening.

Watch as AIG speak to a people like Brian Mullins, Colm O’Rourke, Mossy Quinn, Jack McCaffrey, Suzanne Bailey and Gerry McGill in the GAA who had the pleasure of knowing Dave.
