Fair play to Davy. He's a hurling man first and foremost and Galway need "somebody" so…..

Big news from Limerick with M. Kiely moving away. I could be grasping at straws but these people are key to Limericks success. Their backroom team is highly coveted now across a number of sports.

Hard to know if this is a good move or not, as it rarely seems to work a manager going back to his old job. Not sure either if O'Donoghue is the most tactically astute manager out there, it may be only four years ago since he won an All Ireland with Galway, but back then a lot of Galway's tactics seemed to revolve around lumping high balls down on top of Johnny Glynn, and their other big forwards. Limerick have brought hurling to a completely new level with their incredible skill levels, retainment of possession, moving the ball seamlessly between the lines, constant turnovers, so it's a big ask if this is something that O'Donoghue can bring to Galway?

Tiobraid it was known the week after the final that Mikey kiely was moving on..he has done great work for last two years with senior hurlers..he has also done great work with the limerick under age academey before that..he had moved to a full time position with ulster rugby and I'd like to to say thanks on behalf of all in limerick Gaa and wish him all the best..I'm sure the people in charge of the s&c appointment will bring the very best available..

Totally deal defeatist loser mentality from me I know but I don't think it matters whose managing where for the next few seasons.
Limerick will be on top for another couple of years at least

I don't know how Galway are going to be but we are going to have a say in that. Great team but no divine right to win and they would be the first to say so.

I will agree about 2018 to some extent. But the round robin system did not suit plus the replays.
If it was the same system as 17 and today I think they could have won alot more. Donohue won't come back imo. The higher powers in Galway county board will be the reason but I'm sure he will say work commitments and the like as being his reason. The top table need to be got rid of, they are not fit for the job and are making things harder rather than easier!

The chairmans 5 year term is due to end in a couple of months so no reason why MD cant come back then as according to reports at the time it was issues between them that led to his resignation previously. Its the usual social media narrative to say that "the top table need to be got rid of". There are some good people on the county board.....who would you replace them all with? The clubs county delegates choose them. If they are all so bad then the clubs themselves have a lot to answer for. Maybe you should team up with other keyboard warriors on FB and other social media and put your own names forward and have a coup.

No smoke without fire as they say! I don't doubt that yes of course there are good people , but all that was found in that audit in 19 cannot be overlooked and forgotton. Yes the clubs do have alot to answer also I agree. But Sure listen we may as well let them all in again why not.

Was the same last time when SON ended up being appointed. The delay led to all the rumours of unrest and disinterest in the job for a variety of different reasons.

It's Galway we are used to it! I think the nominations are in now. But no idea who is in the running. It probably won't be a big name. Can't see Micheal Donohue taking it so it could be Jeff linskey or the minor manager.
