Pat Gilroy is confirmed as the new Dublin hurling manager

Ok, it's the wrong section but he is a football man originally.

Hopefully the Dubs can lord it at hurling now for a decade and this might distract a bit from their ladies footballers etc

Or to any of the big teams or business end teams should we call them.

Only one person on Dublin football backroom team is paid, so pipe down sour grapes.

Has he managed any team since that All Ireland semi final defeat to Mayo in 2012? When his Dublin team were hammered out the gate in 2009 by Kerry he came out with a brilliant quote about startled earwigs.

Anything that develops hurling in Dublin can only be positive. I spent long enough up there in areas that never saw a hurl and if it wasn't for the efforts of the die-hards in clubs like O Tooles and Vincents and some teachers in National schools (often the same diehards) the game would be non-existent on the northside. Gaelscoileanna, particularly at second level gave it a great boost as did the forward-seeing decision to allow Dublin Schools play an amalgamated side in Leinster Colleges. The lure of football was as strong long before any development money was ever put into Dublin. So here's one man hoping that this is an enlightened decision and hoping to see a Dublin team contesting and winning an All-Ireland title in the next few years.

Pat Gilroy and the bags of money he has access to may improve the fortunes of the Dublin senior hurling team but will it fck develop hurling in any real way.
