Tomás Brady (born 6 November 1987) is a Gaelic footballer and hurling player for Na Fianna and Dublin.

Hurling[edit]

Brady won the 2005 Leinster Minor Hurling Championship with Dublin in 2005.[1] He went on to make his debut for the Dublin senior hurlers against Wexford in the Walsh Cup at Parnell Park in 2006. Brady represented Dublin at both U-21 hurling and Gaelic football level in 2006 and 2007.[2] He won the Leinster Under-21 Hurling Championship with Dublin against Offaly in July 2007. It was Dublin's first Under-21 trophy since 1972.[3] Brady won a National Hurling League title with Dublin in 2011.[4]

Football[edit]

Brady switched codes in 2012 by announcing that he would be concentrating on inter-county football instead of hurling. He will work under the new Dublin manager Jim Gavin.[5]

Brady's switch to football was described as "very disappointing" by the Dublin Senior Hurling manager Anthony Daly, but he wished him the best of luck in his future season with the senior footballers.[6]

Brady ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament in June 2013 which ruled him out for the rest of the season.[7]

As of July 2014, Tomás has had two championship appearances for Dublin with a scoring tally of 0-02.
