Friday AM Sport: Hurling Manager Mattie Kenny To Stay With The Dubs For 2020 Campaign.

: 08/23/2019 - 08:12

In Gaelic games, Dublin senior hurling manager Mattie Kenny is to stay put with the county for the 2020 campaign, amidst rumours that his name was in the hat to replace Micheál Donoghue, and take charge of Galway.

Donoghue, a Clarinbridge man, departed his role with the Tribesmen this week after four years in charge.

Kenny accepted a three-year term from the Dublin County Board in November of last year, and it's understood he intends to see out that commitment.
