David Treacy believes Dublin hurling is in a good place despite their failing this summer.
Ger Cunningham's reign ended over the weekend, his final season included relegation from division 1A of the Allianz League and hammerings at the hands of Galway and Tipperary in the championship.
The Cuala forward though has defended Cunningham and believes he has left the Boys in Blue in a good place:
“We might have known a few days before”, Treacy said on Morning Ireland on Monday when asked about Cunningham’s departure.
“Ger wanted always for the best of gentleman on and off the pitch; I personally wanted to take this opportunity to thank him for what he’s done.
“It’s not great looking from the outside in, from what he done, but speaking from the player’s dressing room the atmosphere was good and he hasn’t left it in what people are saying he has.
“Personally I would like to thank him for his effort and just wish him the best of the luck for the future”.
Treacy was speaking on RTÉ as the draw was made for the All Ireland SHC semi-final. For the third year in a row Galway and Tipperary will meet.
The other semi-final will see Cork take on Waterford for the second time in this year's Championship.
