Dublin selector Paul Casey says it is critical manager Mick Bohan stays on as the TG4 All-Ireland Senior winners push for a fourth crown.
Aims from Hannah O’Neill and Sinead Goldrick helped grind a narrow 2-3 to 0-4 victory over Galway on Sunday.
Regardless of the conditions for soccer, a record 56,114 was in attendance at Croke Park.
Bohan, who formerly worked in Lucan Sarsfields with Casey, masterminded an early three-in-a-row — and Casey knows his influence is enormous.
«It is angry once you get involved in a team like this it is an eye-opener,» said Casey, who’ve completed two decades with the Dubs.
«When you’re a player everything is done for you and you simply take it for granted. However, you see, actually within the management group, just how much labour Mick does.
«He has everything set up for the team and management staff. He’s so important for this group. He leaves no stone.
«Mick signed up for another 2 years this past year. He’ll enjoy the next few days because we’ve worked hard. It is time to allow down the hair, that the pressure is. It is time to reflect on a job well done.
«You’d expect we will stay together. I can’t observe any people going anywhere if Mick remains around.
«Please God, all of us knuckle down and are prepared for next season .»
The children’s hospitals were visited by dublin in Crumlin and Temple Street.
It was a weekend using the Dublin footballers becoming the first group in history to win five Sam Maguire victories in-a-row.
Casey won an All-Ireland at 2011 using Dublin before he resigned from the panel the next year but was not in Croke Park to witness the 1-18 into 0-15 victory over Kerry.
«The lads are fantastic,» said Casey.
«There is a lot of connections between both groups. They increased the standards concerning game in Ireland, not cultural football. They are an exceptional group.
«We all learn a lot from them and we try to place our own standards also. But it’s a excellent weekend. For to a five and.
«When we beat Cork we were constantly centered on the closing. You have to put yourself and your team. Dublin and Kerry was just a different game on television.
«We had to stay focused. We can look back and say it has been a great weekend to Dublin football.
«In fairness to the girls, you are waiting around for 4 o’clock on Sunday evening. Since we met up on Friday 12, it was a very long time. It is a wonderful distraction. We could look back and say it is very good for both groups.
«We’ll take pleasure in the upcoming few days anyhow to celebrate.»
