Meet Jack Dilger

Sep 22, 2014

Jack Dilger has joined Lansdowne from Trinity this season and made his AIL debut in our opening game against Dolphin and got his first AIL start last Saturday against Cork Con. If Jack looks familiar to Lansdowne supporters there is very good reason as Jack is the nephew (and god son) of the one and only Paddy "Basher" Boylan! So if you want to impress Basher in the bar you will need to take note of the Jack Dilger fact file below!
