Gilroy "very close" to appointing backroom team


New Dublin hurling boss Pat Gilroy says he is "very close" to finalising his backroom team.

The 45-year-old was appointed as the new manager of the Dublin hurlers last week on a three-year term.

Gilroy, who led the Dublin footballers to All-Ireland victory in 2011, has taken over from Ger Cunningham, who resigned in July following the Dubs' humiliating 6-26 to 1-19 qualifier defeat to Tipperary.

And the St Vincent's clubman says he will meet the Dublin County Board before weekend to outline his managerial team, with former Galway manager Anthony Cunningham set to be appointed to a coaching role.

Cunningham won two All-Ireland medals as a player in 1987 and 1988, and led his native county to the 2012 and 2015 All-Ireland finals.

"I have to meet a couple of people this evening to finalise things," he said.

"I'm going to present a plan to the county board by the weekend. It's been very quick to try and get everything into place but I think I’m there.

"As long as they're happy then, by the weekend I think we should be able to tell people who we have. If they're not happy with things then we’ll have to change it.

"It's only a week now. It's been busy to put that whole structure in place. But we're nearly there."

Missing the Championship already? eir Sport will broadcast up to 30 games from the GAA Football and Hurling Club Championships in 2017, including the Dublin club football championship final between Ballymun Kickhams and reigning Dublin champions St Vincent's from Parnell Park on Bank Holiday Monday, 30 October, which will be shown live on eir Sport 2 [coverage begins at 6pm].
