Kerry turn to Carey
Limerick legend Ciaran Carey is set to take charge of the Kerry hurlers.
The Patrickswell clubman will be ratified at the next meeting of the Kerry county committee on November 2.
After a decorated playing career with the Treaty county that yielded two Munster titles and three All Star awards, Carey moved into management where he has had two spells in charge of the Limerick U-21s and also served as senior selector under Donal O'Grady.
Earlier this year he guided Patrickswell to a senior final in Limerick, where they lost out to Na Piarsaigh. Carey, who replaces Eamonn Kelly after he took charge in Offaly earlier this year, will announce his management team in the coming weeks.
Kerry will play in Division 1B and the Liam MacCarthy cup next year.
