8-time All-Ireland champion Eddie Brennan in line to take over Laois hurlers

EIGHT-TIME ALL-IRELAND WINNER Eddie Brennan is in line to become the new Laois senior hurling manager after being proposed by the selection committee.

“Senior Hurling Selection committee has proposed Eddie Brennan as the new Laois Senior Hurling Manager,” Laois GAA confirmed this evening.

“The Laois GAA Executive committee will now be putting his name forward at the next county committee meeting.”

The former All-Star managed Kilkenny to the All-Ireland U21 final last year — their first at that grade in five years — but stepped down in September after two campaigns at the helm.

If ratified, Brennan will fill the void left by Eamonn Kelly in Laois. He’s been in charge for the past two years, but failed to steer them to the Joe McDonagh Cup final in a disappointing 2018.

Kilkenny man Brennan was the choice of the three-man selection committee, which consisted of Niall Rigney, Declan Conroy and Eamon Jackson.
