Dunne willing to carry on


Liam Dunne is prepared to remain in charge of the Wexford hurlers if the County Board and Clubs feel he is the right man for the job.

Dunne's fifth year in charge of the Model County ended in disappointment when they were beaten by Waterford in last weekend's All-Ireland SHC quarter-final.

Prior to that, Wexford had beaten Offaly and Cork in the qualifiers and Dunne believes they have made big strides during 2016.

Having previously intimated that he would take some time before making a decision on his future, the Oulart-The-Ballagh clubman has revealed he is willing to carry on for another year.

“There’s a lot of young guys there, a very young panel that is there. If they want me to stay on I will, if they want me to go I’ll go. We got some things wrong, but we also got a hell of a lot right,” Dunne told the Wexford People.

“From last year in Nowlan Park if you look at the programme against Kilkenny, there are 14/15 players who have gone through retirement, injuries and the like.

“This year everyone’s back was to the wall. There was a tweet from ‘Gizzy’ Lyng some time back about four years and no progress. This was disappointing as the same player said he hadn’t time to give to any development squads.”
