HURLING: Reappointed Kenny ‘focused on making Dublin hurlers better’

Mattie Kenny has agreed to remain on as manager of the Dublin senior hurling team. 

The Galway native guided the squad to a first Leinster final appearance in seven years earlier this summer, with the team showing steady progress in recent seasons. 

“I’m delighted to be in a position to extend my time in charge of the Dublin senior hurlers,” Kenny said.

“We have a great bunch of guys on the panel, who are highly committed to Dublin hurling and the Dublin senior hurling team, and we are focused on getting better and building to delivering the performances that the Dublin hurling supporters can be proud of.

“It is an exciting time with plenty of younger talent coming through in the county, as seen by our recent Leinster success at U-20 level. 

“We are all looking forward to getting back to work later in the year and preparing for the 2022 campaign.”

Dublin County Board chairman Mick Seavers said: “We are delighted that Mattie has agreed to extend his tenure as Dublin manager.”

“We had a very positive year in 2021 at both senior and underage level. We look forward to seeing some of our talented U-20 players progress into the senior ranks under Mattie and his management team in the coming months.”
