Dublin Senior Hurling 2018 - The Pat Gilroy Era


#962

Mr Benchmark I believe his nickname is.


#963

Any non Vincents lads involved apart from AC?


#964

Heatherton and Ger Ennis.


#965

Sean Brady involved, he would of been Tommy Conroys no.2 for years with Vins.


#966

Yea that’s the guy.


#967

Is he the stats man?

Lad from Vincents doing stats lately at a few games.


#968

Hedgo not involved but has been giving them a dig out with players for the trials etc as he would know most players and management of clubs.


#969

Not sure to be honest what his role is.


#970

which in itself is some indictment of the selectors /coaches chosen by Pat.

fair dues to him for digging them out


#971

Dead right, just pointing out a few of the lads who were there, nothing yet to say any off them will be involved long term


#972

From what I’ve heard 4 teams involved…North, South, East and West. A couple of lads were assigned to manage each team and it was these lads who called up players to attend last Saturday.
As the Parnells lad said above, Clubs weren’t asked to send forward players which could be a lost opportunity but I’m sure the lads involved would know most players anyway.


#973

Do we know whether lads like Colm Cronin have been approached yet? i know he’s busy with Cuala but what about Shane Durkin?


#974

Durkin & Paul Ryan asked back as far as I know. Cronin I would imagine is nailed on to be involved if he wishes.


#975

Be good to see one or two Pre season games! Just to see how guys are going! On question of Pre season games: Is Walsh Cup knocked on the head this year? Nothing on Leinster GAA website about it!


#976

sean duignan played for the dubs in the nineties was the brigids chap


#977

a name i couldnt remember in a different context a few weeks ago. Thanks thats another thing put to bed


#978

Think it was Ger Ryan the Naomh barrog manager who was with heatherton


#979

I read somewhere that it was going ahead without the college involvement which, if true, is a good thing.#

Can’t remember where i read that so don’t take it as gospel.


#980

Yea I heard/read that somewhere also! But strange there is no fixtures listed!


#981

Thanks for that, nicknamed Diego?
