Mattie Kenny will bid to build on the solid foundations that Pat Gilroy laid with the Dublin hurlers last year, according to David Treacy.
Treacy is very familiar with how Kenny operates having won two All-Ireland Club SHC medals under the Galway native with Cuala.
“Looking forward, it's just about getting those extra one per cents from last year,” Treacy outlined to GAA.ie.
“It's not throwing everything out, it's a case of where can we make improvements on what was done last year in Mattie's style or whatever idea he has in his head.
“Great progress made last year but it's a case of where can we add those differences instead of losing by a point or winning by a point.
“That starts with a big test on Sunday (against Galway in the Walsh Cup semi-final). We've had a good couple of games.
“Playing games every week is really beneficial towards us trying to get our style of hurling and knowing who plays where and making sure it's organically becoming a system that we have.”
