It was a lacklustre performance from the Dubs who rarely threatened and it could lead to Daly ending his six-year association with the county.

"I came to try and win an All-Ireland quarter final today and there is plenty of time over the next couple of weeks to ponder the future," Daly told the Sunday Game.

"Maybe it's time to let somebody else at it, we'll see over the next couple of weeks, we'll have a few chats with a few people.

"The Dubs need to do better every year, you win Leinster last year, the national league a couple of years ago and there's only one place you want to go.

"After winning the relegation playoff and beating Wexford it looked like we might kick on but unfortunately we didn't in the last two games.

"We've lost heavily to Kilkenny and Tipp and you can't hide from that."

In 2011 Daly led Dublin to their first National League title in 65 years and last year they became Leinster champions for the first time since 1961.
