DALY: I want to stay

ANTHONY Daly has given his first indication since Sunday's All-Ireland semi-final defeat to Tipperary that he is prepared to stay on as Dublin manager for another season.

However, the two-time All-Ireland winning Clare captain stopped just short of confirming his commitment for 2012, explaining: "There are just a few things I need to look at."

The Clarecastle native has completed three years at the helm, with one season remaning on his agreement with the Dublin county board but was non-commital on his future in the immediate aftermath of Sunday's disappointment.

However, writing his the column in today's Herald, Daly admitted: "I would be lying if I said I wasn't awful tempted to keep going now and to build on it.

"But there are just a few things that I need to look at.

"But I have to say, I do Iove it...it's a long track and if you weren't getting a kick out of it, you wouldn't be doing it.

"Nothing would entice you to stay on if it was a labour, but for me, it's a labour of love."
