EVENING ECHO     14/02/2014

“If you head into Cork’s training base in CIT you’ll notice Matthews doesn’t bark orders at the players. They might fear some of his drills, but they don’t fear him. Positivity is the mantra.”

IRISH INDEPENDENT 26/09/2014

"David knows a lot about peaking for top performance, and the former Olympian has made a big difference to the Cork panel since team manager Jimmy Barry Murphy two years ago invited him on board as team trainer"

"Matthews, a fizzing ball of energy and anecdotes ………..has played a key role in the transformation as the team’s physical trainer. He rolled down the motorway from Kildare twice a week and helped give expression to the philosophy. What might have seemed like an unlikely alliance at the time has since been hailed as yet another stroke of Barry-Murphy’s seemingly magic brush."
