Former Limerick goalkeeper, Joe Quaid has left his role as Kildare hurling manager after three years in charge.

It is expected that the two-time All Star winner will now take over as boss of Westmeath, following the departure of Michael Ryan earlier this summer.

Ryan was with the county for almost four years, guiding them to the Joe McDonagh final this year before departing following their loss to Wexford in the preliminary quarter final in July.

Quaid was formerly in charge of the Limerick camogie side before taking over the top job with the Lilywhites who were crowned Christy Ring champions under his stewardship this summer.

In a statement, Kildare GAA thanked Quaid for his contribution to their hurling side over the years.

“Joe and his management team have put in tremendous work and commitment over the last 3 years and won the Christy Ring Cup this year.

“We sincerely thank him for all that he brought to Kildare GAA during his time and wish him all the best for the future.”
