AFTER TJ RYAN’S departure as Limerick senior hurling manager in July, now the Limerick senior footballers are in need of a new man at the helm.

John Brudair has confirmed today that he will not be in charge for 2017 after being in charge for the past three campaigns.

Limerick’s championship campaign this year ended with a defeat to Cork in Semple Stadium in July in the qualifiers after they had previously beat Antrim in their opening qualifier clash.

In Munster this summer, Limerick bowed out against Clare in a provincial quarter-final.

An official statement released this afternoon by the Limerick county board announced the departure.

John Brudair has informed CLG Coiste Contae Luimní today that he will not be going forward for another term as Limerick senior football manager.

John has given sterling service to Limerick Football over the past three seasons. CLG Coiste Contae Lumní and Coiste Peil Lumní would like to thank John and his management team for their dedication to Limerick football.

We would like to wish John, his management team and their families to very best in the future.”
