Dublin hurling star Cian Boland says he’s been really impressed by new manager Micheál Donoghue since taking over the squad.

The 2017 All-Ireland winning boss was appointed in August, succeeding Mattie Kenny in the post, and, speaking at the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Roadshow with AIG, Boland praised his individual coaching approach.

“I think it’s a really good appointment considering his pedigree and what he did with Galway over the last few years,” said Bolan, who himself has recently returned from a ruptured Achilles tendon injury.

“I think everyone on the panel is really excited to see what him and his management can bring to the table. Mattie and his management team were great but I think it came time that everyone needed that natural bit of change.

“What I’ve been really impressed with about Micheál and his management team is the one-to-one coaching that him and his coaches are giving to players throughout sessions.

“It’s something that probably since I left the minor ranks, that kind of individual coaching, one to one, tips on how to improve your game, I feel like there’s definite room for improvement across the board.

“Just getting that feedback for small little things that you can change in your game to help you improve. That’s something that I’ve seen Micheál and his management team doing in the last few sessions.”
