It has been announced that former Cork goalkeeper Dónal Óg Cusack will be a member of the Clare hurling backroom team for 2016. Teaming up with Davy Fitzgerald, the two former goalkeepers will work together in a bid to see the Banner back to the heights of 2013.

Having been rumoured as a potential candidate for the Waterford job before Derek McGrath took over, it has been anticipated that Cusack would soon enter the fray of top level management. This comes as a big boost to Clare, who have already received a lift this month as Podge Collins is set to take on dual commitments for 2016.
Cusack is set to hang up the microphone as he will not be on the Sunday Game for 2016 which may come as a blow to RTÉ, who are losing one of their more outspoken pundits. The 38 year-old caused much debate in July with his assessment of Cork’s championship exit.
Cusack: “…I have met with RTE & following mutual agreement I have been released from my contract…” #GAA
