Today we look at St. Teresa’s ‘Best 15’ as seen through the eyes of former dual player, Martin Brunty. Martin had a long and distinguished playing career with the Belfast men and his selection goes back to a time when his club were up there challenging with the best in the county. I repeat, this is one man’s opinion and won’t gain universal approval but it will bring about debate amongst his St.Teresa’s colleagues and further afield.
It’s just a bit of fun!
