Next season will mark the 20th that Cody will have been at the helm of the Kilkenny senior hurlers, as his remarkable managerial reign extends into 2018.

The 63-year-old has guided the Cats to 11 All-Ireland titles, 15 Leinster crowns and eight national league successes since taking over from Kevin Fennelly in 1998.

Cody’s backroom will again be formed by selectors Michael Dempsey, James Mc Garry and Derek Lyng.

The management team will be desperate to get back to winning ways in 2018 after Kilkenny relinquished their Leinster crown in 2017 and failed to reach the All-Ireland quarter-finals, losing to Waterford in the qualifiers.
