We came with a young team from 2008 - 2010 who accepted Kilkenny's challenge to match or go beyond their standards and our boys did that by getting better year after year until we bagged the big one in 2010.

That's what the chasing in pack in football has to do. I don't see a lot of traditional rivals of Dublin doing this especially in Leinster. It is the same teams who are trying to bridge the gap year in year out (Mayo, Kerry, Tyrone). Where is everyone else?

Sorry Donegal the last team to beat Dublin in championship have been in the mix too.

Galway and Cork are trying hard too.

Not looking forward to January as it will be two calendar years since we won Liam, 2018 - 2020.

A famine of epic proportions :-)

Can't wait for the Munster League to start and then the NHL.

Kilkenny didn't enjoy the same advantages as Dublin. Did kilkenny play every championship match for 10 years in Nowlan Park? Did kilkenny have 24% of the population or over a million annually in sponsorship? Did they receive 20 million for underage development or special government grants? If they did they'd have won even more all ireland's then they did.

You've ignored my point to suit your narrative.

Should we not all settle down a bit about Dublin. From 1922 to 1958 Dublin won one All Ireland. From '77 to 2011 they won two and nobody was crying out to split the capital. Their under age teams have not overall being setting the hills on fire either, even in Leinster, over the past decade. Anyway why are Dublin successes the main topic on a thread about KK Hurling?
