Provost Dr Patrick Prendergast and Trinity Student Danny Sutcliffe

Third year Business Economics Social Science (BESS) student and Trinity GAA player, Danny Sutcliffe recently received a presentation from the Provost in recognition of his national Hurling All Star award for the 2013 season.  Danny was joined on campus by his parents and St Jude’s GAA Club representatives to help celebrate this remarkable achievement.

Danny has played Dublin Hurling since minor level (2008 – 2010) and was captain of the team which reached the All Ireland semi-final against Clare in 2010.  He won the Leinster U21 Championship with Dublin in 2011 and made his senior inter-county debut in 2012.  Danny has thrived under the stewardship of former All Ireland winning captain and current Dublin Manager Anthony Daly and played a key role in the county’s historic Leinster Championship victory in 2013, following on from the team’s promotion to Division 1A of the Allianz National League earlier in the year. 

Despite Dublin’s loss in the All Ireland semi-final last summer, where Danny contributed four points, his performances were rewarded when he received the honour of being named as one of the elite of hurling talent in Ireland on the 2013 All Star selection.  Danny’s talents are not confined to the hurl and sliothar as he was also part of the Dublin Minor Football Panel in 2009 and has regularly fielded for Trinity in both hurling and football.

Commenting on Danny’s accolades, Provost, Dr Patrick Prendergast said, ‘Trinity is very proud of Danny’s achievements and we are delighted to celebrate this occasion in the company of his parents and club representatives.  Danny is a role model for his student peers and we continue to work closely with sports such as the GAA to ensure that high performing athletes receive the necessary support during their time at Trinity College’. 

Head of Sport, Michelle Tanner, commented, ‘We are thrilled to congratulate Danny on his All Star Award.  Gaelic Games at Trinity is going from strength to strength and his achievement is a huge boost to his fellow players and students in Trinity's GAA clubs and other sports.’

Danny will be playing for Trinity when they compete in the forthcoming Kehoe Cup and Ryan Cup fixtures.
