John Kiely receives two year extension as Limerick's senior county hurling manager

It was a no brainer really.

John Kiely will be the man leading Limerick for three-man-a-row next season as they have already banked the two previous Hurling All-Ireland titles.

It should come as no surprise then that Kiely has been giving another two years extended on his contract, after the success he has achieved so far.

Limerick have won eight trophies under his fiver year reign so far, including the Liam McCarty trophy on three occasions.

The county's executive met last night, and approved him and his backroom team the two year extension, which will see them in charge of the county for a total of seven years if completed.

A statement from the county board confirmed Kiely and his team would be put to the clubs for ratification next month.

“Following a county executive committee meeting the Limerick senior hurling management team consisting of John Kiely, Paul Kinnerk, Alan Cunningham, Aonghus O’Brien and Donal O’Grady has been approved for a two-year term and will be brought forward to the October county committee meeting for ratification.”
