Six-time All-Ireland winner Philly McMahon has taken up a new role with Dublin Camogie, joining as the Head of Performance, with his company BeDo7 forming an exciting partnership with the set-up.
McMahon, who won the latest of his six Sam Maguires in September, will oversee the strength and conditioning of all Dublin squads from U14 level up to senior, beginning his role in mid-October.
“I always wanted to get involved with a team giving 100% commitment into something and what better than Dublin Camogie?” he said.
“It’s the county I love so why not get involved in it. I seen the opportunity to get involved to try support the great volunteers that are part of Dublin Camogie.”
The news of McMahon’s inclusion in the setup was also welcomed by Dublin camogie chairperson Jenny Byrne.
“As Chairperson of the Dublin Camogie Board I am thrilled that Philly has come on board with Dublin Camogie. He sees the great potential within Dublin Camogie to win All-Irelands.”
McMahon then added that after discussions with Byrne and the committee, he found that the pair would be “a great fit” to work together.
“When I first met Jenny and the committee I sensed that they had an open-mindedness to my ideas and I think that was the big thing for me, I wanted to get involved and I had the company so it was, ‘Can I get involved with a group of people that I can learn from but also be expressive in my ideas?’
“The committee are very open to new things and you got to do new things to create success, we can’t keep doing the same things and expecting different results so I think it’s a great fit, I think it’s an exciting opportunity and I am really looking forward to seeing how it goes.”
