In Pictures: Dublin Took On UCD In A Special GAA Match Last Night

Dublin took on UCD on Thursday night to mark the opening of Billings Park.

The new pitch at Belfield is named in honour of Dave Billings. A Dublin GAA stalwart, Billings was an All-Ireland winner under Kevin Heffernan in 1974.

He served as manager of the Dublin U21s and was as a selector for the Dublin senior footballers under both Tommy Lyons and Paul Caffrey. He was also synonymous with GAA at UCD where he worked as the Gaelic games officer.

Dublin ran out easy winners last night, scoring 7-10 to UCD's 1-17.
