Anthony Daly has been appointed as the new Head Coach of Limerick’s Underage Hurling Academy.
Daly stepped down as Dublin’s senior hurling manager earlier this year after six years with the side. In his time there he steered the Metropolitans to their first National League and Leinster titles in over 50 years; giving a much needed boost to hurling in the capital.
Daly replaces Jerry Wallace as Head Coach. The Clarecastle man will also form part of Leo O’ Connor’s minor hurling background team. He will act as coach alongside selectors John Mulqueen, Pat Donnelly and Brian Foley.
Daly will have the responsibility of Limerick’s u-14 to Minor Hurling teams. He joins the Treaty county when hurling is flourishing in the county; especially at minor level. 2014 saw the Limerick Minors win back-to-back Munster titles for the first time in their history. This year their Senior hurlers made it to an All-Ireland semi-final meeting where they came close to beating Kilkenny.
A press release from Limerick GAA stated,
“the board are delighted to have appointed one of the most sought after coaches in the country and look forward to his working with and identifying our potential stars of the future.”
