Limerick native set for Meath Hurling manager’s job

The Bruff man will be taking over his first managerial role at the Leinster county.

Limerick’s Seoirse Bulfin is set to become the new manager of the Meath hurlers after being recommended by the Management Committee of the county.

Bulfin has been a part of a number of management teams but this will be his first time as manager of a county.

The Bruff man first came to prominence as a coach when he was part of Davy Fitzgerald’s management team that helped Clare land the All-Ireland title in 2013.

He had previously worked with Fitzgerald in Waterford where they reached the All-Ireland final in 2008.

Bulfin followed Fitzgerald to Wexford where they managed the Yellowbellies to a first Leinster title in 15 years in 2019.

The Limerick man then moved to the Royal County as part of Nick Weir’s backroom team last year and is set to replace the Westmeath native after he announced he was stepping away after three years at the helm.

Steven Clynch and David Reilly are set to remain in the backroom team under Bulfin with Ciaran Keogh to take over as Strength & Conditioning Coach.

Last year, Meath finished pointless in the Joe McDonagh Cup and will ply their trade in the Christy Ring for 2023.

The Royals will play in Division 2B of the League after suffering relegation in the Spring.

The Meath footballers also recently announced a new manager with Colm O’Rourke taking over the role.
