Dublin hurling - where next?


#2019

Papers were pretty sure of it at the weekend, I’d say it’s a done deal that it will be Gilroy


#2020

Heard it will be announced today .

As said previously I hope to god the county board know what they are doing


#2021

Getting that feeling as well, maybe they think he is overqualified. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Hope Giller and Cunningham have a serious coach in mind.


#2022

If it is giller will he start looking at he football team for some hurlers. Connolly an obvious one.
Would rory o Carroll be an option when he is back in the country.


#2023

Connolly would be mad to attempt a switch over. Can’t see it happening


#2024

A few people have said that now, why would giller be able to lure players from the best dublin football panel ever who are in with a shout of making history, to the hurlers. Certainly not anyone who is going to play regular football. Would hope he can get Mark Schutte back. That’s about it.

It’s only lads who can’t do it one handed that get roared at to use two!

The pitches are so bad in some public parks where juvenile matches are played that two handed pick ups are necessary. Either no grass on a concrete like surface, or grass too long as council couldn’t be bothered cutting the pitch before a match.

On the beer ?


#2027

Turn on the radio, I’m told there’s a press release coming soon.


#2028

And say a few prayers it’s Kenny before you turn on the radio!


#2029

We lost an u21 all ireland final cos of ‘‘2 hands’’


#2030

Before or after the Angelus ?


#2031

Before or after Christmas?


#2032

Tayto… In the gilroy set up is Cunningham not de coach ?


#2033

Lunchtime I believe


#2034

Is he a coach coach, i thought he was going to run the line as such but most of his success is with football teams isnt it, not sure if he’s a skills coach.


#2035

One thing we haven’t discussed here is the 21 management for the year. I think that’s just as important as we have a huge number of lads / talent there at present. That was a major stumbling block over the last couple of years.


#2036

Drawing kilkenny first round doesn’t help.


#2037

Last couple of years. Did we not get to all ireland semi in 2016? It was last year was the issue.


#2038

Yes for sure, but we need solid management there also from a “further development” point of view. And both groups need to be able to work seamlessly together.
