Dublin county hurling team

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Dublin county hurling team represents Dublin in hurling and is governed by Dublin GAA, the county board of the Gaelic Athletic Association. The team competes in the three major annual inter-county competitions; the All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship and the National Hurling League.

Dublin's home ground is Parnell Park, Donnycarney. The team's manager is Mattie Kenny.

The team last won the Leinster Senior Championship in 2013, the All-Ireland Senior Championship in 1938 and the National League in 2011.

In the 2005 league Dublin were relegated to Division Two in the National Hurling League, while the minor side won the Leinster Championship for the first time since 1983. In 2006 Dublin gained promotion to Division One after victory over Kerry in the Division Two final.[1] Following some indifferent displays in the 2006 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship, they still managed to save their status in the top flight of hurling counties and again contested the McCarthy Cup in 2007. In the 2007 National Hurling League, meanwhile, despite being favourites to go down in 2007, Dublin managed to avoid relegation by finishing in fourth position. In 2009, former Clare manager, Anthony Daly was appointed manager of Dublin.[2] Under his management, Dublin contested the Leinster Final, but lost by 2 goals to Kilkenny.[3]

Dublin won the National Hurling League in May 2011 after a 12-point win over Kilkenny, their first national title since they won the All Ireland in 1938. The hurlers have a very fervent following who travel in significant numbers to matches in the provinces. There has been a revival in the fortunes and popularity of Dublin hurling in recent years, and Dublin underage teams have had much success.[4][5]

On 7 July 2013, they won the Leinster Final against Galway on a 2–25 to 2–13 scoreline, scoring 2–21 from play. This was the first time they had won this important competition since 1961. In a nice touch, the Goalkeeper from the 1961 team, presented Dublin Captain, Johnny McCaffrey with the Bob O'Keefe trophy.



Dublin shares rivalries with fellow provincial sides Kilkenny, Offaly and Wexford.

Notable players


Dublin's hurlers have failed to replicate the success of the county's football side, having won the Senior All-Ireland Hurling final on 6 occasions, most recently in 1938. In terms of All-Ireland titles, they are significantly behind hurling's big three of Kilkenny, Cork and Tipperary. Their six titles do however place them fifth in the overall winners list, jointly tied with Wexford.

Dublin have won the Leinster Championship on 24 occasions, the second most Leinster titles of any side, although they remain well behind Kilkenny, who have won the Leinster Championship 70 times.

Dublin have won the National Hurling League three times: in 1929, 1939 and 2011. This places them joint seventh (with Clare) on the overall winners list, having won 16 fewer titles than top-ranked Tipperary.[10]


In 2007, the GAA announced that a hurling team from Fingal (north county Dublin) would compete in parallel to the main Dublin team,[11] to encourage hurling in an area of growing population where the game has not been strong.[12] While players from Fingal are eligible for the main Dublin team, non-Fingal players cannot play for Fingal.[12] The new team competed in the Nicky Rackard Cup in 2008,[12] and the Kehoe Cup in 2009.[13] They played in the National Hurling League up until 2016 when the Fingal Hurling project was disbanded.
