Limerick’s O’Connor ratified as new Offaly minor manager

Former Limerick hurler Leo O’Connor was last night announced as the new manager of the Offaly minor team for 2020.

While the appointment of eight-time All-Ireland winner Micheal Fennelly as senior boss has garnered the attention of most, O’Connor’s appointment is a shrewd one with the Claughaun man leading Limerick to U21 Munster glory in 2011.

That epic 4-20 to 1-27 was Limerick’s first Munster title at the grade since they completed a three-in-a-row of titles in 2002.

As a player, O’Connor was part of the Limerick’s 1994 All-Ireland loss to the faithful county.

In 2015 he was in charge of the Limerick minor team that contested the Munster final where they would lose out to Tipperary.

Last year, O’Connor took on the role as coach of the minor team in Offaly where they would lose each of their three group games.
