Are they the "chicken shit players" who won the 2017 hurley championship?
You're making a total (bigger) eejit of yourself on this thread and the Paraic Duffy one.

Winning a tin cup doesnít make their reinactment of the Night of the Long Knives any better. A sin is a sin regardless.

So the ultimate senior trophy in hurling is s tin cup................

And it would be better to keep the same manager and not win it.......

Tell you what have s chat with someone who is involved in hurling and come back to us.

You haven't the remotest breeze about the most mercenary manager on the club and intercounty circuit both codes currently have you

Dublin Co Board will save a fortune on expenses ::) now that they've a local man appointed.

wait til he rolls out a backroom team of about 20...............
Anthony Cunningham set to be named as team coach by the looks of it.

No doubt doing it purely for the love of the game.
Ah, I'm sure he will be well looked after and good luck to him.  Going in as a coach I think is more suitable to his talents than the top job itself.  He did a reasonably good job for us and brought through a good few young players to the panel that are thriving now, its just he was quite poor on the line IMO and did struggle to manage a few of the older brigade - he should have jettisoned the likes of Collins long before the end of his tenure etc.  Will be interesting to see what shape they put on that squad as it has slipped quite a bit in the past few years for various reasons.

Yeah, that was very poor form - took Conor a good while to get over that shambles

I don't recall him managing their senior team, maybe he did, but he did do some work with their underage a good while back.

He also started James Skehill in goal in an All-Ireland final when he had literally one working arm.

To be fair to him he did introduce a lot of the players who went on to win this year's All-Ireland but some bizarre decisions on the line seemed to blight his tenure.

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 fŻck develop hurling in any real way.

Put up the Hurling senior team expenditure list. Galway, Tipp, KK , spend huge sums on their teams, Clare don't have too as they have a multi million Euro complex to ponder around in.

Dublin under Gilroy will catch up on them now, make it a level playing field in hurling for a change.

Your comments are cheap. . . .

I wish Gilroy and Dublin hurling all the best, but it'll take Dublin a good few years and a fair wind to close the gap on the Tipps, Waterfords, Galways and Kilkenny's of this world.

They'll need the few natural forwards they have to row in behind the hurlers, like Con Callaghan and hope that Sean Currie of this years minors develops into the hurler he can be and is shite at football.

Underage hurling in Dublin has progressed well over the past twelve years with the minors and U21s winning a number of Leinster titles. The challenge now is to maintain this progress and see the potential of the young players realised at senior level.

Since Dublin's hurlers have not appeared in a senior final since 1961 and have not won one since 1938 I would assume that all lovers of Gaelic games everywhere would wish the county well in their efforts.

Hurling needs fresh blood and Dublin could be that, but development to be sustained over a considerable period of time before the fruits come through at senior as Galway and Limerick can testify to.

A January 27th double header in Croke Park featuring the Dublin hurlers and the All-Ireland football champions: thatís entertainment. It has become Dublinís show because the GAA decided that the malfunctioning city team was a problem that needed sorting. Thatís done now, which is just as well because once the Dubs really get motoring, the GAA is going to have 31 new problems on their hands. They have to leave running the country to the amateurs for a while yet.

Duggan has another good piece today.

At the end, extract above, he makes a good point which is one a lot of posters here are making but get slated for it.

And how are the 31 problems to be addressed?
As I said in another thread months ago time for  a major strategic review by the GAA.
