LIMERICK SENIOR HURLING boss TJ Ryan has appointed a new coach to replace Paul Beary.

Dinny Cahill, the former Laois and Antrim boss, is filling the void as Ryan continues to shake up his backroom team.

Ryan already pulled off one major coup with the recruitment of Joe O’Connor, a key member of Clare’s 2013 All-Ireland winning set-up, as strength and conditioning coach.

And now he has added Cahill, a former All-Ireland senior club medallist with Tipperary outfit Kilruane MacDonagh’s, to his backroom staff.

Cahill is renowned as an impressive coach and he’s been involved with a host of leading club teams, including Portumna in Galway, Limerick outfit Doon and Kilkenny’s Graigue-Ballycallan, as well as stints with Laois and Antrim.

Meanwhile, it is understood that former Limerick minor boss Leo O’Connor, who stepped down following this year’s All-Ireland quarter-final defeat to Galway, will take up the role of intermediate manager next season.
