« on: December 01, 2016, 03:11:54 PM »
That time of year again!
Champions Borris Kilcotton looking for new manager Ken Hogan gone back to his own club Lorrah
Clough Ballacolla homework done early with the appointment of former BK manager Tommy Buggy
It's believed Rathdowney Errill will part company with Brian Young.
Has Arien taken the reigns for another year in Camross?
Ballinakill ?
Portlaoise?
Abbeyleix look to be retaining Mark Tyrrell
Castletown ?

Big surprise with Ken Hogan parting ways with Borris Kilcotten. Thought Brian Young did a very good job with Rathdowney, why is he not staying?
James Carroll staying on with Ballinakill.
Heard different about Abbeyleix, unconfirmed but players wanted Mark Tyrell to remain on but he has walked I heard.
Arien Delaney back with Camross as far as the wind blows.
Harps appointment will be important is David Cuddy staying on to attempt to bring them straight back up?

I had heard that Ballinakill also spoke with Tommy Buggy so somewhat surprised to hear that Carroll is staying on.

Don't think the players were overly impressed with Brian Young so a change was always likely.

Arien Delaney is back with Camross. Same selectors from 2016 I understand too.

The Harps will surely bring in an inside manager?

Buggy is one that seems to be very highly rated or very poorly thought of- depending on who you are talking to. Wasn't he quite close to landing the Laois job at one stage? This will be his 3rd Laois club by my reckoning?

Carroll made a funny move last year from Abbeyleix to Ballinakill. Some very strong characters in that dressing room.

Young is highly rated by many- including some in RE.

I'm hearing that Delaney will stay where he is. You'd imagine Portlaoise and Castletown will remain unchanged.

Abbeyleix to change again?

Big boots to fill in Borris Kilcotton!

Did Borris Kilcotten get a replacement manager for Ken Hogan yet? Any news on appointments within other clubs?

BK have appointed Ronan Kelly as the Manager, they have gone with one of their own as manager and he is bringing his own hurling coach. He was a selector with the team for the last 2yrs.

Yep BK gone with Ronan Kelly as manager, well respected & players very happy with appointment, hurling coach is a Clare man & also on board is a qualified S&C coach from within the club.

Have Abbeyleix, Portlaoise, Ballinakill, any appointments made?

I don't think James Carroll is back with Ballinakill. Nor is wanted.

Paul Cuddy gone from Castletown? Wouldn't have expected that?
I thought Brian Young was gone from R/E?

I don't think James Carroll is back with Ballinakill. Nor is wanted.
I thought this was a very strange appointment 12 months ago. Leaving Abbeyleix to join their neighbours (who had just come off a very successful first year back at Senior level)
