Obviously not confirmed officially, but what Iíve heard is that Senior hurling S&C coach is former Olympian & Cork Coach Dave Matthews
Hurling Coaching team of Galways Francis Forde, Limerick/Corks Munster winning coach Donnach O Donnell & Kilkennyís All Ireland winning goalkeeper/Wexford coach PJ Ryan

Seriously impressive set up if all correct & true.


Step in the right direction if true.All very well established coaching experience and great expertise, Forde being highly regarded in Galway with coach of 2017 all Ireland winning team. Hopefully we have our best talent in there from across the county.
Best of luck to them! Itíll be interesting what Laois people in for selector roles aswell.

Cha, Scully & Sugrue all involved too apparently. No surprise but Cheddar certainly knows how to pull out all of the stops.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled.......

Great to see Cha and Scully back. Could do with a few more backs in also (Leigh Bergin?).

Who is Sugrue?

John Sugrue

Portlaoise based Physiotherapist and Ex Laois Football manager.

Some around here might have heard of him


Cummins supposed to be involved as goalkeeping coach also

That would be Brendan Cummins Sunday game panelist and Ex Tipperary Hurling goalkeeper

Cummins must be a very good coach as he's always in demand however his TV work always seems to come first. Wasn't he in a studio when his team were playing the final last month?

Wow, great to have John Sugrue involved. Would have thought that if it was 'that' Sugrue that he might have found himself back in the football world.

Cummins seems to move around a lot, and invariably prioritises TV work. Iíd prefer to see someone else in there if itís possible

How much work does Enda Rowland need though?

Few hours with Cummins a week will more than polish him,Endaís in the top 3/4 keepers in the country as it is

I would have liked to have seen a Committed goalkeeping coach come in and work with all the Keepers in the county from development squads up to Senior sub keepers,but you canít have everything.

Itís a much neglected area.

But the names being mentioned as part of cheddars backroom squad are impressive as it is

Particularly interested to see Franny Forde involved,excellent coach

Himself and Noel Larkin will be looking for another stab at Galway senior management at some point even if Geoff Lynskey is the heir apparent

Not sure I'd be as optimistic as some are on a few of the names for the backroom that are being bandied about, Fran Forde excepted. Hard to see two keepers working together either if both PJ Ryan & Cummins are involved as has been indicated here. But I guess you'd never know and it is all speculation at this stage. It will take time for Cheddar to gel it together and time (with the squad) is going to be a scarce resource in 2021 if the GAA stick to proposed calendar and return to activity doesn't start until, say March. At least everyone will be in the same boat...

Lads, what I wouldnít give for a freezing cold Walsh cup game today, in Rathdowney, Borris, or Abbeyleix with a quick couple of pints in O Malleys, Kellyís or Morrisseys after talking about who was brutal or who will make it!!
Hopefully better days ahead again soon!! 🤞🏻

Not the point. Youíre either part of a set up or youíre not. Nothing frustrates guys more (even at club level where it is a lot more common) than people dipping in and out of a set up. And I donít think Cheddar would or should put up with it.
Definitely couldnít see both Ryan & Cummins involved.

Well we were fairly pliant  with Brennan managing us  and being on the Sunday game at the same time

It wouldnít have been let happen in any other serious hurling county bar here

Well, many on here (including my good self) were critical of that from the start of Brennanís time.
It doesnít mean itís a precedent we should be willing to extend, even to one from the Holy Land!
