Ballyboden St Enda's star Conal Keaney is back training with Pat Gilroy's Dublin hurlers ahead of their 2018 national league campaign.

The 35-year-old retired from inter-county hurling in 2016 following Boden's All-Ireland football success.

Keaney played under Gilroy when he was in charge of the Dublin footballers.

He won a National League medal and a Leinster title with the hurlers and will be hoping to contribute to more success in the capital.

Dublin face Wexford in a Walsh Cup semi-final this weekend and open up their account in the league against Offaly at Croker on January 27.
