Limerick Camogie seek ratification for new look backroom team

Limerick Camogie board have found a replacement for John Tuohy

The Limerick Camogie County Board have identified a new management team following the departure of John Tuohy last month. 

In a statement released this evening the board have put forward coach Declan Nash as their option for the managerial role. If ratified at next week's county board meeting, Nash will be joined by Darragh O'Grady and Michelle Casey with two more additions to be confirmed in the coming weeks. (Coach and selector)

Statement in full:  

With the aim of continuity and building on the last two years great work, the board have proposed Declan Nash as manager with Darragh O’Grady and Michelle Casey named as selectors. A coach and additional selector will be confirmed in the coming days. 

This team will be put forward for ratification at next week's County Board Meeting.

Both Nash and O’Grady served as part of the previous management set up, the first to win a senior trophy for the county, and will be delighted with the addition of former Limerick Camogie captain Michelle Casey in their ranks. 

Michelle, who plays for the Killeedy club brings experience, leadership and an in depth camogie knowledge to the set up. She has also managed the Limerick minor team in recent years. 

Declan Nash is now in his third year with this group and has successfully implemented a strength and conditioning program that has helped bring this group to a level of genuine All Ireland contenders. 

The continuation of the previous two years work was critical in the appointment of the new team and focus immediately turns to retaining their Munster title and then the All Ireland Championship, beginning in June.
