Anthony Daly is held in high esteem by Dublin Hurling fans following his six year successful stint as senior manager which included a first League title in 72 years and first Leinster title in 52 years.

After Daly left the Dublin hot seat in 2014 he took over as director of coaching at the Limerick underage hurling academy, a role he held until August of this year when he decided to step down.

Daly though is once again back involved in Dublin hurling, this time at club level with Kilmacud Crokes announcing Anthony as their new senior hurling manager.

Daly takes over from his former Clare team mate Ollie Baker who was in charge of Crokes from 2013 until he stepped down from the role following Crokes loss to Cuala in the Senior Hurling Club Championship Final a few weeks back.

Along with Daly the Crokes management team will include long-term club stalwart, ex-Tipperary captain and Dublin hurling selector Richie Stakelum and former senior club hurler, mentor and officer Adrian Crean.

Kilmacud Crokes Hurling Chairman Peter Walsh said: “We are delighted that Anthony and Richie have agreed to come onboard. We have a talented, ambitious and driven group of players and I am very clear about the conviction, passion and ambition the new management will bring to our club and its flagship team.

” We have a massive interest and hunger for success in hurling in the club and the community and we are really looking forward to getting going on the year ahead.”
