In many ways Donanl O’Grady changed the game of hurling to more of a passing game, before that a lot of the time hurlers you just belt it up the pitch and hope for the best. But Donal O’Grady brought in a lot of the short puck outs you’d see from keepers nowadays and the short, smart passing style.
There has been a famine in Cork for the last number of years, the last time they won the All-Ireland was under O’Grady in 2004 so a lot of people will be hoping he can work his magic and bring the Liam McCarthy back to Lee side again.
