DUBLIN football legend Philly McMahon shows off his new set of gnashers after having major dental surgery.

“That’s all the dental damage sorted from football,” beamed the 34-year-old, as he proudly showed off his new teeth.

The Ballymun Kickhams star has had a rollercoaster year, with he and his wife recently becoming parents, to baby son Leannain.

He also recently announced his retirement from the Dublin GAA panel, having won eight All-Ireland titles.

Philly was forced to close his business due to the pandemic and make himself and his staff redundant and go on PUP.

But now things are on the up again for driven Philly, whose BeDo7 gym in Charlestown is now reopen again and flourishing.

Philly recently told the Sunday World the wives, girlfriends and partners of players are of huge support.

“Ultimately the wives and girlfriends have put huge sacrifice into helping us as players achieve our ultimate goal and play for the Dubs and stuff like that,” he told us.

“That for me, I seen what their partners and wives have done. That makes me appreciate then what I have to do in terms of helping Sarah and stuff like that.”

Sarah, who is from Whitehall, works for the Hammerson company, which manages several large shopping centres, including Dundrum, Swords Pavilions and the Ilac.

The young couple have their own home.

“We are very lucky that we are on the property ladder,” he reveals. “We bought a nice little cottage about four years ago, so we are lucky to have a lovely home. It’s close to where we are both from.”

Philly has also become a performance coach with Bohemian Football Club and has been giving motivational talks to prisoners in Mountjoy and Wheatfield , as part of Half Time Talk programme.

He also owns a health food company, Nutriquick, while his gym business is a big passion. He once owned four but decided to focus all his energy into just one big one in Finglas, but that has to temporarily close last year.

Philly got his dental work done in My Dental Ireland.
