BARRY NASH HAS left the Limerick senior hurling panel, according to reports on Shannonside this morning.

The Limerick Leader states that Nash, man-of-the-match in the 2015 Bord Gáis Energy All-Ireland U21 hurling final, is no longer part of the set-up.

Nash, a former Limerick Munster minor winner who was at the centre of the 2013 HawkEye storm, is a highly-rated young player who’s still eligible for the U21 grade this year.

He made his senior championship debut for Limerick last summer and featured in all three of the Treaty men’s summer outings.

Nash, full-forward on the team defeated by Cork in the Co-Op Superstores.ie Munster senior hurling League final, was expected to play a key role for manager John Kiely this year.

But Kiely, who managed the 2015 U21 crop, told the Limerick Leader that Nash has “withdrawn from the panel for personal reasons.”
