PJ throws his hat back into management ring

ONE of the most successful managers in the sport, PJ Donohue, is seeking to re-enter the camogie cauldron.

This season, PJ was busy managing the Faughs senior hurlers. He led them to the quarter-final of the Dublin Senior Championship.

Faughs are the most celebrated of all the Dublin hurling clubs.

They were beaten by St Jude's, who almost went on to shock Kilmacud and take the title.

But now the camogie candle has begun to flicker once more. He has enjoyed many wonderful days in the game.

He managed the Dublin senior team. His work there was applauded

Some of the best memories of all came at Ballyboden St Enda's. He was five years on the Boden bridge, where he won three Dublin senior titles and one Leinster.

He was the last manager to lead a Dublin club to Leinster glory.

He then had stints at Erin's Isle and Naomh Mearnog. And he has fond memories of both clubs.

He has vast experience in coaching. Previously, he was club coach at Ballyboden St Enda's, where he accomplished much.

Hard work and good discipline have been the hall marks of his management.

He tells it straight, and the players respect such honesty, even when it's not the tune they'd prefer to hear!

Putting in the hours on the training field has brought him results.

He is an astute tactician.

He loves the sound of the sliotar on the ash. For PJ, it's the sweetest music of all.

And he'd be interested to hear from any camogie clubs that are looking for a manager - 087-6623589.
