DLS are showing great progress with O’Brien at the helm as GPO
BUSTLING Ballyfermot. The streets are busy, Full of friendly greetings. Paul O’Brien knows these parts well. Born and reared. He bought a house on the road where he grew up. “I didn’t stray too far,” he smiles. He’s waiting up at the Ballyfermot De La Salle clubhouse. It’s a neat structure; dressing-rooms, showers, toilets, a gym. And a packet of biscuits for the cup of tea.
