Michael Fitzsimons the Dublin defender may be from the hurling stronghold of Cuala but it is most definitely on the football pitch for the Dubs that the 31-year-old has made his name.
Since his debut in 2010 Fitzsimons has clocked up seven All Ireland’s as Dublin took control of the inter-county scene, and Fitzsimons has played a major role in many of those successes.
His ability to marshal his defense and his direct opponent mark him out as a cut above many of his fellow defenders, while his positional sense and tackling mean that no forward is ever going to have an enjoyable day if they see Fitzsimons lining up against them at the beginning of a match.
