Allen takes over at helm for Limerick

JOHN ALLEN will become the third Cork man in succession to manage the Limerick hurlers once his position is ratified by club delegates next Tuesday night. The former Rebels boss will receive the backing of the county board's management committee after being selected by the three-man sub-committee entrusted with appointing Donal O'Grady's successor.

The man who managed Cork to their 2005 All-Ireland success did so after taking over from O'Grady on that occasion also, before leaving the post after the Rebel's '06 final defeat to Kilkenny.
