Last Updated: 11/10/17 9:53am
Pat Gilroy has been appointed as Dublin senior hurling manager on a three-year term.
Gilroy spent four years in charge of the Dublin footballers between 2008 and 2012, guiding them to three Leinster titles and All-Ireland success in 2011.
The 45-year-old succeeds Ger Cunningham, who stepped down after three largely disappointing seasons in charge.
The St Vincent's clubman saw off competition from Cuala's All-Ireland club hurling-winning manager Mattie Kenny to land the role.
The Dublin County Committee has announced further details on Gilroy's backroom team will be announced shortly.
Former Galway boss Anthony Cunningham is expected to form part of the team.
