Dublin hurling - where next?


#1999

Saw something in de Irish times that the unforeseen event was an unscheduled business trip by gilroy to Israel …


#2000

I hope you’re right Roger but I heard the opposite . At this stage I don’t know what to believe anymore


#2001

Gil Roy was down in vinnies this morning carrying a Hurley… Was trying to take a picture of it, but couldn’t manage it!


#2002

Was he holding it correctly


#2003

Just down watching his young lad :wink:


#2004

Yizzil be slaughtering a county board member and reading his entrails at this rate :joy:


#2005

Two hands on the hurl Giller! Two hands on the hurl! Now which is your pencil hand?


#2006

Good game it was too!


#2007

Gilroy in Parnell now anyway for SHC QFs


#2008

Kenny on the line for cuala, you know, managing a hurling team! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#2009

Any sign of other people involved or mentioned?


#2010

Cunningham was in parnell


#2011

Heading for the Johnny walkers now . Christ on a bike


#2012

Surely a done deal now


#2013

Odd that one of them wouldn’t have been out in O’Toole park.

Unless part of the management team was out there.


#2014

Hopefully the next coach of the Dublin team will get rid of these myths that are been rammed into kids heads who hurl in Dublin. “2 hands on the hurl” is bad advice. Does Joe Canning or any of the other players do everything with two hands on the hurl? Mostly it just breaks a players stride and balance forcing them to lift with two hands but it’s constantly heard at kids games, yet rarely if ever seen at the top level in adult.


#2015

I agree on the one handed thing. I think it needs to be coached. Far superior to 2 hands but it does look bad when incorrectly done.

However the next Dublin manager won’t impact that. Juvenile coaches across the city need to move away from their training manuals and teach kids the skills of the game as played by the games top players. The old roar of “2 hands on the hurl” as to be eased up on


#2016

Can’t be 100% on this,as I didn’t talk to him personally, but apparently Mattie was letting people know that he would not be the next Dublin manager.


#2017

Is this a wind up?
So Gilroy and Cunningham is deal done?


#2018

As I said, can’t be 100% on it but a couple of people said it to me in O’Toole Park.
