His days as Galway hurling boss may be over but Anthony Cunningham will be back on managerial duty next Sunday with the GAA/GPA Opel hurling All-Stars in Austin, Texas.
Anthony Daly will be the other manager as the 2014 and 2015 All-Stars (plus some replacements) play an exhibition game in a part of the world not exactly noted for its hurling history.
It's part of the GAA's promotional policy, which has seen the All Stars travel to cities all over the world since the tours re-started in 2001after a lengthy lapse.
Among the replacement All-Stars will be John Griffin, who captained Kerry to victory in this year's Christy Ring Cup.
Meanwhile, Ger Loughnane and Ray Cummins have been inducted into the Munster Hall of Fame.
"Ger was a great player and, as manager, brought unprecedented success and pride to Clare hurling. Ray was one of the greatest ever dual players. They are well deserving of this honour," said Munster Council chairman Robert Frost
They will receive their awards at the Munster GAA Gala Dinner on Saturday in Dromoland Castle.
