OFFALY HURLING GREAT John Troy has been appointed as the new manager of the county’s camogie team.

The double Celtic Cross winner replaces Joachim Kelly who guided the county to All Ireland successes in 2010 and 2009.

Elsewhere, All-Ireland finalists Galway have appointed Tony Ward to the senior camogie post, following an AGM on Monday.

Ward led the county to All Ireland success in 1996 and replaces Noel Finn. Former player Sharon Glynn joins Ward’s backroom team, along with James McGrath and Declan Walsh.

Meanwhile, Paudie Murray has been appointed to the senior camogie post on Leeside. The St Finbarr’s clubman has previously been involved with the UCC side and is a brother of current Cork panellist Aoife.
