LIMERICK ARE TO add former senior dual player Brian Begley and Cork All-Ireland winner Paudie Kissane to their backroom team under new manager Billy Lee.

The new management team was unveiled last night at a Limerick football committee meeting before going forward for ratification next week at a meeting of the Limerick county board.

Lee had been widely tipped for the role recent weeks. He served as a senior selector previously under Liam Kearns, is a former county U21 manager and was involved with Kerry club Austin Stacks this season.

The Limerick Leader has reported that Begley and Kissane are to be brought on board as a selector and coach respectively while Ricky Ronayne will also be a selector.

Begley is a former Limerick senior dual player and the Mungret club man lined out in the 2007 All-Ireland senior hurling final at full-forward against Kilkenny.

Kissane was part of Cork’s 2010 All-Ireland final triumph as a player while in recent seasons he has been involved in coaching with the Clare senior footballers in 2014 and the Cork senior footballers this season.

Ronayne coached Monaleen to the Limerick senior football title this year while Barry Fitzpatrick, who was part of that Monaleen team, will be the squad’s strength and conditioning coach.

Fitzpatrick filled that strenght and conditioning in recent years with Clare U21 and intermediate hurling sides, while he is also a former Limerick senior footballer.
