Cody to remain at Kilkenny helm


Brian Cody has been confirmed as Kilkenny senior hurling manager for a remarkable 20th season.

A county board meeting on Tuesday also ratified the backroom team of Derek Lyng, James McGarry and Michael Dempsey to remain for the 2018 campaign.

The Cats endured a disappointing season this year by their own sky-high standards, losing out to Wexford in both the natonal league and the All-Ireland SHC respectively.

Indeed Kilkenny even failed to make it through to the All-Ireland series for the first time since 1996 after losing to Waterford in the qualifiers, their first Championship loss to those opponents since 1959.

But Cody's overall reign has been a ridiculously successful one, with the Cats claiming 11 All-Irelands and eight National League titles under his watch, with the highlight perhaps the four-in-a-row of the former won between 2006-09.

While Kilkenny are experiencing a fallow period at the moment, the county board feel Cody is the right man to lead them back to the very top.

eir Sport will broadcast up to 30 games from the AIB GAA Football and Hurling Club Championships in 2017. Coverage continues with the Limerick club hurling championship quarter-finals at the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick on Saturday, 16 September when Ballybrown will take on Patrickswell at 6pm, and Adare face Doon at 7.45pm.
