Anthony Daly has been confirmed as the new manager of Dublin hurling finalists Kilmacud Crokes.
Daly, who stepped down from his director of coaching role at Limerick's underage hurling academy in August, replaces his former Clare team-mate Ollie Baker at the south Dublin club.
Baker took over at Kilmacud Crokes in 2013, and led them to the Dublin club title in 2014 and two final defeats to Cuala in 2016 and 2017.
Daly, 48, won two Celtic crosses as a player with Clare in 1995 and 1997, and led Dublin to the 2011 National League and the 2013 Leinster title during his six years in charge of the Sky Blues between 2008 and 2014.
Former Tipperary captain and Dublin hurling selector Richie Stakelum joins Daly's team as a selector, while former Kilmacud Crokes' player Adrian Crean comes into his backroom team.
"We are delighted that Anthony and Richie have agreed to come onboard," Kilmacud Crokes hurling chairman Peter Walsh said.
"We have a talented, ambitious and driven group of players and I am very clear about the conviction, passion and ambition the new management will bring to our club and its flagship team.
"We have a massive interest and hunger for success in hurling in the club and the community and we are really looking forward to getting going on the year ahead."
