Cuala Manager Mattie Kenny Appointed Dublin Hurling Boss

Current Cuala boss, Mattie Kenny, has been appointed as the new Dublin hurling manager following the departure of Pat Gilroy at the end of the summer.

He will serve a three-year term as manager.

The Galway native had been linked with the position last year before the announcement of Gilroy but was chosen for the role this time around, given his back-to-back All Ireland success with Cuala. He was also in contention for the vacant Waterford position before the appointment of Padraig Fanning two months ago.

Kenny’s management team will be confirmed at the next County Board Committee meeting.

In a surprise move, Gilroy stepped down from the role in September having been with the county hurlers for one year. He cited work commitments as the reason behind his decision.

The 46-year old who led the county to the All Ireland football title in 2011, was widely praised for his effort with the hurling team, who were highly competitive in this year’s new-look Leinster championship.
