Clare On The Hunt For New Manager As Donal Moloney Steps Away

Clare GAA have announced that manager Donal Moloney will not be seeking another term as the county’s hurling boss.

Moloney has been in charge of the side for three seasons alongside joint-manager Gerry O’Connor who stepped away following Clare’s exit from the championship earlier this year.

The duo led the Banner county to two Munster finals as well as an All-Ireland semi-final appearance in 2018 which resulted in a narrow one-point loss to Galway.

Following O’Connor’s exit, there was much speculation that Moloney would also announce his departure and Clare legend Brian Lohan is among those who have put themselves forward for the position.

In a statement on Twitter Clare said:

“Donal Moloney has informed our senior hurling panel of his decision not to seek another term as Senior Hurling manager.

“We would like to acknowledge Donal for his contribution to Clare hurling over 12 years.

“We wish Donal and the management team the very best for the future.”
