Banner legend Baker takes Kilmacud reins
The Clare influence on Dublin hurling looks set to strengthen after Ollie Baker was confirmed as manager of one of the city's leading clubs, Kilmacud Crokes.
The double All-Ireland winner had been in charge of the Offaly hurlers for the last two years and he'll replace Gerard O Riain at the helm of the 2012 Dublin SHC winners.
"The club are delighted to have brought on board someone of the calibre, energy and passion of Ollie Baker," said Peter Walsh, chairman of Crokes Hurling.
"We believe that this sets out the enthusiasm, ambition and vision of the club and the commitment for us as a club and as a team to work as hard as possible to regain the Dublin Senior Hurling Championship.''
