THIS week’s October County Board meeting rubber-stamped new selectors for the Limerick intermediate hurling team.

Last week Tom Ryan and Tony Roche resigned their roles as selectors.

Speaking to LeaderSport Tom Ryan cited a ‘lack of honesty’ in recent inter-county management appointments as his reason for stepping down.

However, this Tuesday club delegates didn’t raise any issues and ratified the new selectors without debate.

Dromin-Athlacca’s Darren Moynihan and Murroe-Boher’s Ray Ryan were the new duo selected.

They join the previously ratified manager Don Flynn (Killeedy), trainer John Lacey and selector Declan O’Grady (Patrickswell) in the 2015 Limerick intermediate hurling management.

Meanwhile, Limerick’s new U-21 hurling manager John Kiely is to announce his selectors in the next two weeks.

U-21 Football

Newcastle West’s Declan Brouder has been confirmed as Limerick’s new U-21 football manager.

He is also to continue as a selector with John Brudair’s senior management.

The U-21 selectors are to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

Minor Football

Limerick’s 2015 minor football manager Jerry O’Sullivan (Newcastle West) has finalised his backroom team.

Selectors Sean Holmes (Oola) and Paddy Ivess (Cappagh-Kilcornan) were rubber-stamped this week.

At present the trio are guiding the fortunes of the Limerick U-17 football team in the Munster Development competition. They have beaten Waterford and lost to Clare. They play Tipperary next Monday night.

Junior Football

Cappamore’s Diarmuid Sheehy is to continue as Limerick junior football manager for 2015.

Like last season he will be joined by selector Moss McCarthy, who was coach to St Patrick’s in last Sunday’s Limerick SFC final loss to Ballylanders.
