It appears that Limerick GAA’s search for a coach to join TJ Ryan’s backroom team for 2016 is at an end.

It appears that Limerick GAA’s search for a coach to join TJ Ryan’s backroom team for 2016 is at an end.

Former Antrim and Laois manager Dinny Cahill has been chosen for the job but his appointment is subject to ratification by the club’s at Tuesday night’s county board meeting.

The Kilruane McDonagh’s clubman replaces Paul Beary in the role.

Cahill was involved with south Limerick side Croom earlier this year but departed before their SHC season began.

He has joined new selector Don Flynn and Joe O’Connor (strength and conditioning coach) as part of TJ Ryan’s new-look management setup.

Plenty of names such as Jerry Wallace, Paul Kinnerk and Tommy Dunne had been rumoured to take the coaching role but Cahill is the man that Limerick have settled on.
