Cullen quits Leinster for Dublin


Bryan Cullen is to leave his position as strength and conditioning coach in the Leinster Academy to take up the High Performance Manager role with Dublin GAA.

Cullen, who captained Dublin to All-Ireland victory in 2011, has spent the past four years with Leinster Rugby but he will return to his GAA background to oversee the strength and conditioning of all Dublin's inter-county teams.

"Coiste Átha Cliath are delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Bryan Cullen as the High Performance Manager for Dublin GAA," a statement from Dublin GAA read.

"Bryan joins Dublin GAA after four years with Leinster Rugby and having recently completed his PhD in Dublin City University.

"He will be entrusted with developing a long term player pathway from juvenile to senior level for the county's players, as well as taking a lead role in the strength and conditioning of all our inter-county teams.

"Bryan will begin his role in the coming weeks."

Cullen made his senior debut for Dublin in 2003 and went on to make over 50 appearances for the Blues, playing at centre back and wing forward during his inter-county career. As well as skipping the county to the Sam Maguire in 2011, he was also a member of the squad that regained the All-Ireland crown in 2013.
