Dublin Senior Hurling 2018 - The Pat Gilroy Era


#920

Best of luck to him in retirement. Great attitude & Servant of Dublin Hurling.


#921

Did Dotsy win an All-Star?


#922

nominated in 2013 only i thought


#923

Dotsy along with keany won leinster senior football and hurling medals ,a rarity in the modern game and very unlikely to happen again in the near future


#924

A rarity indeed! Maybe Con might be added to that list in a few years!


#925

Thanks for the memories Dotsy a great servant and ambassador for dublin hurling .always a gent


#926

Is Dotsy 35 yet?


#927

Lads got calls today to an extended training panel I believe after Saturday


#929

Something in the line of a 50 man panel with a lot of new faces so i believe great to hear.


#930

next year


#931

Not the case that he is going before pushed, was given the opportunity but injuries particularly to his back just ment that time was up.

Not only was Dotsy a great player for Dublin he is a real gent, great lad for presenting medals and talking to underage players. Great attitude on the field and terrorised a few Kilkenny defences when they were at the top, hopefully in years to come that experience and knowledge will be used on development squads and inter county teams.


#932

By that logic Paddy Carr should replace Jim Gavin with the footballers.


#933

Me: Checks voicemail

Me: Grumbles about unfair the county call up

Me: Orders another pint of porter


#934

Couldn’t agree more with this. Dotsy done a summer camp some years back in our club, my young lads was helping out as a 15 year old and Dotsy took him under his wing for the week. Showed genuine interest in the young lad and really treated him like a friend for the week.

Was also a smashing hurler who had knack of getting scores from nothing, and a great servant to Dublin GAA. Hopefully he stays involved at some level.


#935

always seems a smart kind of player, so would be surprised if he didn’t get into coaching/management at some level. Talked last year about how much he would miss being involved with this group of players.


#936

Could be wrong! But does Dotsy not work full time in coaching and development?


#937

Yes, he’s the GPO out in St Marks (his own club)


#938

Thought he was Boden … :nerd_face:


#939

Your a Barrs man aren’t you? How many lads from Barrs got a call up?


#940

We’re both right! His home club is Mark’s but he moved to Boden in 2015 (according to Google anyway!)
