The word is the new manager is a Delaney lad from Ballyroan Abbey. Don't know anything else about him.
If it's Noel, he played with Ballyroan.....on the team that won Laois in 1992 and lost the Leinster final to Eire Og (Carlow) that year. Played on the 1994 Laois team that won the Leinster title, losing to Cork in the semis. Played Sigerson for DCU.
If it's a different Delaney, I don't know what I'm talking about.
