Anthony Daly resigns from director of coaching role


Anthony Daly has stepped down from his role as director of coaching with Limerick’s underage academy, he had been in the position since December 2014, as reported by Jackie Cahill in today’s Irish Examiner.

Daly was also acting as coach to for the Limerick minor teams working under successive managers Leo O’Connor, Pat Donnelly and John Mulqueen.

In a statement released last night, Daly thanked the county board among others, and said he believes Limerick hurling is in a good place.

 “After carefully reflecting, I have decided to resign from my position as Director of coaching in the Limerick underage academy.

“They have been three very enjoyable years and the highlight was qualifying for an All-Ireland minor final in 2016.

“I would like to thank the Limerick county board for giving me the opportunity and a special word of thanks to Joe McKenna, the former Head of the academy who invited me in initially.

“Joe’s passion for hurling is nothing short of infectious. In the past three seasons, I’ve worked with many fine coaches, players, supportive parents and three minor managers – Leo O’Connor, Pat Donnelly and John Mulqueen.

“I believe that Limerick hurling is on a very sound footing for the future and I would like to wish them every good luck.”

Odds have now been cut for Daly to return to the Dublin senior hurlers.
