Donal Moloney has decided not to seek another term as manager of the Clare senior hurlers.
The Scariff native was, apparently, eager to carry on at the helm of the Banner County following the decision of Gerry O’Connor to stand down as his fellow joint-manager in the wake of their disappointing Munster SHC campaign.
O’Connor had called for Moloney to be given the job in his own right but as the process to ratify a senior team management continues to drag on, @ClareSenHurlers has tweeted that Moloney has informed the players of his decision to withdraw his name from the process.
The latest development might pave the way for the appointment of Clare legend Brian Lohan.
It was reported this week that the four-time All-Star, who guided UL to Fitzgibbon Cup glory in 2015, is interested in the job and had met with County Board officials.
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. pic.twitter.com/3WkaxJq29k— Clare Senior Hurlers (@ClareSenHurlers) October 6, 2019
