Laois manager becomes a hurler on the ditch

Laois hurling manager Brendan Fennelly has resigned. He becomes the fourth inter-county manager to quit in recent weeks.

His decision comes after a 34 point mauling at the hands of Cork in last month’s championship clash.

Cork were subsequently thrashed by Galway in the play-offs last weekend.

Laois had a respectable showing in the National League, finiising third in Division 2, but the defeat to Cork sounded the manager’s death knell.

Fennelly joins a long and growing list of managers to prematurely leave the dug-out this summer.

Already Offaly’s Joe Dooley, Wexford’s Colm Bonnar and Clare’s Ger O'Loughlin all quit before they were pushed.
