Pat Gilroy Resigns

(Oldest Posts First)

One year in and he's had to resign.
Travel with work commitments flagged as the reason. Think he had them heading in right direction and will be a loss. Who's going to get the job ?

Massive disappointment ,there's an obvious candidate in Mattie Kenny but will he leave mid club campaign , just wish if Pat had to go it had happened earlier , I am honestly lost to come up with a name that can take our squad to the next level , there are decent coaches out there but decent isn't what we should be settling for , equally to run a top inter county squad you have to have the weight and kudos to bring a top class support back up team with you

Most logical thing to do would be to make Cunningham the manager and choose someone new next year.

I'd imagine it isn't sudden and a plan is in place!

Doubt Kenny will be offered it.

It was his last time until the DCB realised what he was getting out of Dalkey and they balked at that.

Very disappointing

He had a good first season and it was great to see him involved again. He's got the X factor that fella.

Brought the team back together, had them playing hard and were unlucky not to reach a Leinster final. Just not the finished article yet but there was plenty of positives to take and a solid platform to build from.

Fecking real shame he couldn't commit further but he's already given years of dedication to Dub GAA and being a successful business man owning his own company he has more responsibility than most outside of the sport.

It does make sense for Cunningham to remain and I wonder if Whelan will continue?

I was looking for MK to get the nod before Gilroy got the job but Cunningham is a very experienced manager and is already in place.. could Mattie Kenny work alongside Cunningham?

With Gilroy gone now.. would like to see Kenny getting the job. Knows the players, knows Dublin hurling scene, well respected, proven winner.

You'd imagine Pat would've been aware of his work commitments before he took over. Seems odd to me.

I knew there had to be something other than work commitments getting in Gilroy's way. No surprise to me that it came down to what he felt he needed financially to do what he wanted to do with the hurlers.

There was a good article in the Indo over the weekend on his role with footballers and how he put the structures in place for the model of success we now have.

All very quite on the successor any body hearing anything ? Newspapers still going with same three names Cunnningham Dally and Kenny but wouldn't be surprised to see a rabbit pulled out of the hat either ,

The fact that the appointment of manager is described as imminent and they don't want to interfere with the club final suggests that a manager involved in the final is being seriously considered.

Good news

Still disappointed to see Gilroy go

But an excellent replacement in MK

Proven winner, knows the Dub club game very well

Lots of positives to build on from last year

Have a good feeling about this appointment
