O'Grady denies longer Limerick role

Donal O'Grady says he will manage the Limerick hurlers for one season only.

O'Grady will be ratified on Wednesday night as the Treaty county's new boss, with Ciaran Carey, Pat Heffernan and TJ Ryan as his backroom team.

"The agreement we have is that I will have the job for a year. There's talent there and there's potential there," said the former All-Ireland winning Cork manager.

O'Grady added: "My feeling is that there is enough managerial talent in Limerick but they felt they needed a little bit of stability after the last couple of years. Maybe I was approached because I had come in after the Cork strike a few years ago.

"What they wanted was Limerick people to be directing the ship but they wanted the experience brought in first to put structures in place that they could carry on themselves."
