Dublin Senior Hurling 2018 - The Pat Gilroy Era


#1927

Now that is a very opinionated post!!! Not that I disagree fully, he was very good, but one of the best is big praise!


#1928

That’s a very odd time for a game alright.


#1929

Im sure he is 30 this year


#1930

If you like 6.2 strong hurlers that’s not Gary but quick skilful and reads the game very well that would be Gary just an opinion


#1931

Round up of things so far


#1932

Tomás Brady. Is he done and dusted with IC?

Was always told he was someone people listened too. Fine hurler too.


#1933

Believe it or not but Conal Keaney is back on the panel now too.


#1934

Back to the future. To be honest i have no problem him back while we’re missing the Cuala lads. We need to be competitive in the league against limerick and Galway and if the best options is 34 i have no problem with that.


#1935

Class. He’ll put the frighteners on the young bucks


#1936

24 34 or 54 If they are better than what’s already there then get them playing! With regards to Keaney he would be some impact sub to bring on for last 15 mins of a game still in melting pot. But not sure he would be happy doing that role.


#1937

I don’t think Pat Gilroy will be concerned with what Keaney might be happy with …


#1938

Thought Gilroy was the reason Keaney left the footballers ?


#1939

No of course not! But the point I was trying to make was Would Conal really bother coming back to sit on bench every time! From the players point of view there should be a good chance you will get to start games! Maybe there is a great chance Conal will start games!


#1940

Ah it’d be legend to see the fist pump going again.


#1941

If Conal Keaney is back with the Panel this is not the direction you want to be going

He was finished as an intercounty hurler 2 years ago


#1942

He was finished as a wing back 2 years ago. Ball winning HF or FF he could still be on option.


#1943

Finished within a system that was flogging a dead horse maybe. I think he would bring great stability to a very young team!


#1944

Absolutely. Experience alone makes him a massive addition.

Also I’d say he’s able to make serious trouble in the edge of the square.


#1945

Weren’t Gilroy & Keaney tipped to be the double-act to take charge of the hurlers?

Maybe Keaney is Pats sleeper agent & enforcer
