LIMERICK HURLING CHIEFS have tonight announced that TJ Ryan will continue as the county’s manager for another three years.

The news comes just 48 hours after another defeat in an All-Ireland semi-final.

Ryan was proposed for another term at a meeting in Claughaun this evening.

The Limerick Leader reports that county chairman Oliver Mann said Limerick’s executive members met with Ryan yesterday.

“Practically 100% of his management team will be available to him,” Mann said.

Ryan was initially installed as a joint manager with Cork’s Donal O’Grady but when the former All-Ireland winning coach walked away from the position earlier this year, the Garryspillane took the reins.
