Pat Gilroy Steps Down As Dublin Senior Hurling Manager
By Maurice Brosnan

Pat Gilroy has stood down as Dublin hurling manager due to work commitments.

After just a year in charge, Gilroy made the announcement via a statement on Sunday. Having avoided relegation from the Leinster championship, there was huge promising surrounding his tenure but the St. Vincents man has cited overseas travel as a reason he cannot continue with the side.

"It was a huge honour for me to be selected to manage the Dublin senior hurling team and I was delighted that I was able to make a contribution during the past year," Gilroy said in his statement.

Unfortunately my work commitments involves a considerable amount of overseas travel and it will not be possible for me to continue in this role.

I would like to express my appreciation to my management and backroom team who were very supportive at all times and to the players for their exceptional commitment and dedication. Thanks also to the county board and the clubs for their encouragement and assistance.
