DJ Carey visits Kevin Lynch Hurling Club

posted 21 Feb 2014, 01:47 by brian mcg   [ updated 21 Feb 2014, 01:47 ]


Denis Joseph "D. J." Carey (born 11 November 1970) is an Irish retired hurler who played as a left wing-forward for the Kilkenny senior team.[1][2][3]

Born in GowranCounty Kilkenny, Carey first excelled at hurling whilst at school in St. Kieran's College. He arrived on the inter-county scene at the age of seventeen when he first linked up with the Kilkenny minor team, before later lining out with the under-21 side. He made his senior debut in the 1989-90 National Hurling League. Carey went on to play a key part for Kilkenny over the next decade and a half, and won five All-Ireland medals, ten Leinster medals and four National Hurling League medals.[4][5] He was an All-Ireland runner-up on three occasions.

As a member of the Leinster inter-provincial team at various times, Carey won two Railway Cup medals. At club level he won two championshipmedal with Young Irelands.

Carey's career tally of 34 goals and 195 points ranks him as Kilkenny's third highest championship scorer of all-time.

Throughout his career Carey made 57 championship appearances.[6] He announced his retirement from inter-county hurling on 1 June 2006.[7][8][9]

Carey's granduncle, Paddy Phelan, is regarded as one of the greatest hurlers of all-time and won four All-Ireland medals with Kilkenny. His aunt, Peggy Carey, won four All-Ireland medal with the Kilkenny camogie team. Carey's brother, Martin, was sub goalkeeper on the Kilkenny for a number of years.

Carey is widely regarded as one of the greatest hurlers in the history of the game. During his playing days he won nine All-Star awards, as well as being named Texaco Hurler of the Year on two occasions. He has been repeatedly voted onto teams made up of the sport's greats, including on the Kilkenny Hurling Team of the Century in 2000 and on a special Leinster Hurling Team (1984-2009). Carey's omission from the Hurling Team of the Millennium was seen as controversial at the time.[10]

In retirement from playing Carey has become involved in team management and coaching. At club level he has trained the Young Irelands junior hurling team, while he has also served as hurling coach at Carlow Institute of Technology.
