AODAN WRENN ‏@AODANWRENN

“Good decision to get Donal O’Grady back as Limerick Hurling co-manager. TJ Ryan will learn so much from the Cork maestro. #LuimneachAbu”

Aodan Wrenn reckons Limerick’s twin-pronged approach is a win-win affair

JOHN CRAWFORD @JONNYCRAWFORD

“TJ Ryan hit ground running feel he’s got good men around him. I’im excited - think they’re going to do great job”

Tweeter extraordinaire Jonny Crawford is looking forward to the new regime finding their feet

GARRYSPILLANE GAA ‏@GARRYSPILLANEGA

“Congratulations to TJ Ryan on his appointment of Manager to the Limerick Team” #allroadsleadtoCroker”

TJ’s clubmates in Graryspillane were quick to offer their congratulations and are also looking forward to their next outing to Croke Park

DF ‏@DEISE1948

“Is TJ Ryan the Roy Keane to Donal O’Grady’s Martin O’Neill?”

For the week that’s in it this particular Waterford supporter had a predictable enough take on things. We’re fairly certain he’s not on his own in this line of thinking however

TOMMYOMAHONY ‏@OMAHONYTOMMY

“Good to see Donal O’Grady coming bac.k Did a great job before. Got the current squad together. Not sure about TJ Ryan though”

Tommy O’Mahony is somewhat pleased but not he’s not fully convinced

STEVE ENRIGHT ‏@CLASHOFTHEASH

“Joint Managers?? Ah for God sake! One manager, one boss, end of, wouldn’t be in favour of this at all.”

While Steve Enright reckons that too many cooks spoil the broth ...

MIKE FLYNN ‏@MFLIMERICK

“@clashoftheash Tend to agree. Nobody is held accountable for anything. Very easy to pass the blame onto the other fella”

… and he’s got a kindred spirit in Mike Flynn

DAMIANLAWLOR ‏@LAWLORDAMIAN

“Donal O’Grady & TJ Ryan good double team. Should work well. Not much disruption either which is crucial.”

The Sunday Independent’s GAA man Damian Lawlor sees the many positives in the new appointment

MICHAEL MCCARTHY @MCCARTHYMICK

“Donal O’Grady back with Limerick. So that means John Allen will be back too in a year or two, yeah?”

But Clare man Mick McCarthy thinks it’ll be no time at all before John Allen is unveiled as the new manager once again

DECLAN MOYLAN @DECMOYSTER

“Donal O Grady and TJ Ryan as Co Managers with OGrady the Coach. Yes I’m happy with that hon the lims”

Declan Moylan is content enough and can’t wait for the new campaign to get underway

JOHN O’DOWD @JOHNPKENRY

“Why do Limerick need TWO managers? Surely O’Grady can do it by himself and put Ryan as a selector #GAA”

John O’Dowd wonders why Limerick have to be different and senses that Limerick could be over-complicating things
