LIMERICK GAA CHIEFS held talks with John Allen and his senior hurling management team last night as uncertainty continues over the reign of the Cork man with this year’s Munster champions.

There has been much speculation over Allen’s future after his two-year term of office ended when they lost to Clare in last month’s All-Ireland semi-final.

It is still unclear whether he will go for another term in charge and another meeting is set to take place after this weekend, when a decision will then be made for the 2014 season.

Limerick chairman Oliver Mann hopes to be in a position to update the county committee at their meeting next Tuesday, September 10th.

But there is still strong speculation that Allen will not be in charge next year despite having lead Limerick this year to their first provincial crown in 17 years with a final win over Cork in the Gaelic Grounds in July.

They had earlier overturned Tipperary in the Gaelic Grounds in the Munster semi-final.
