Watch: Did Mattie Kenny Hint At His Possible Cuala Exit Here?

Watch: Did Mattie Kenny Hint At His Possible Cuala Exit Here?

Having guided Cuala to successive All-Ireland Club Hurling wins, Galway's Mattie Kenny may have reason to feel somewhat vindicated after being overlooked by Dublin's senior panel in favour of Pat Gilroy.

Leading a Dublin club to their first (and now second) All-Ireland win, the manager spoke to TG4 in the wake of another monumental performance from his side.

Stressing that it had just seemed like "a super game of hurling" from where he was standing, Kenny complimented the extra "edge" his side had brought to the game today.


Speaking as his players lifted the trophy, Kenny spoke admiringly of Na Piarsaigh's "top class forwards" also.

Although the interview had seemed to run its course, Kenny interjected - he wasn't quite finished talking yet:

Just before I finish up, I'd like to acknowledge this group, what they've put in the last four years ... what they've done in Dublin, what they've done in Leinster and now they've won back-to-back All-Ireland's here tonight.

You know, the management set-up, the backroom people ... such a huge group of people making Cuala what they are today.

Stressing his admiration for all involved in this Cuala set-up, TG4's Mícheál Ó Domhnaill asked the question many listening were thinking; "That doesn't sound like a retirement speech I hope Mattie, does it?"

Unfortunately though, that was all we got. You can listen below and make your own judgement.
