O'Grady named Limerick manager

Donal O'Grady has been ratified as Limerick's new hurling manager.

The former All-Ireland winning Cork boss has been given a one year term, along with selectors Ciaran Carey, TJ Ryan and Pat Heffernan.

County chairman Liam Lenihan told delegates that he doesn't envisage any problems for the new manager in blending members of the 2009 panel - the majority of whom refused to play under Justin McCarthy last season - and this year's panel.

"I don't think it'll be as big a problem as people think. Donal O'Grady has been interviewed and has said that there's no panel at present. He will obviously consider anyone who wants to hurl for Limerick, be they from 2009 or 2010. I feel confident that Donal O'Grady and his management team will be able to gel those two panels together," he said.
