Dublin maybe paid Cullen 50 grand but he runs the whole show. Johnny D was apparently on that in Tyrone to look after the seniors only and now Same in Monaghan. That’s why it’s using the money smartly that makes the difference

I doubt Cullen left Leinster rugby for 50 grand.

Not a hope.

Donnelly had a full time role with Tyrone working in a similar capacity to Cullen with Dublin. Tyrone couldn't compete with what Ulster were offering, in fact I think Donnelly had walked temporarily at one point with Tyrone due to pay disputes.

I'd say Leinster rugby pay a lot better than Ulster rugby, they have a bigger budget. And yet Dublin are able to snare Cullen away from Leinster rugby.

The Cavan S/C coach Andre Quinn was with London Irish before joining Cavan last year. He's employed full time to look after development Squads and Senior team

A few counties have full time S/C coaches

Cavan had Peter Donnelly in that role before too.

I don't know a lot about rugby but I'd imagine London Irish have nowhere near the budget of Leinster rugby. Quinn is also a Down native I have found so it's likely he would liked to have relocated closer to home and enjoy a much less demanding cost of living, so it's quite possible he was happy to forego a fair chunk of his salary too.

None of these circumstances were in place when Dublin enticed Cullen over to them. Both jobs were Dublin based so he had no reason to forego a salary and it's worth noting that Leinster are one of the biggest rugby teams in Europe so it's surprising how Dublin can entice a guy to swap a similar role with a professional set up. Must be serious €€€€€ on offer from Dublin.

Hardly that surprising when a global brand like AIG sponsor Dublin. Cullen was probaly eager to get involved with Dublin given that he'd an ex player.

I'm sure he's just another hard working Volunteer!

Happy 2021 to most GAAboarders. It has to be better than 2020 but will be a few more months before that happens.

Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose
