Kilkenny legend Eddie Brennan has been ratified as Laois manager tonight along with his backroom team for next season.

Brennan, who previously guided the Kilkenny U21 side to the 2017 All-Ireland final, will take up his first senior inter-county management role with the O'Moore county, and will be assisted by selectors Tommy Fitzgerald (Portlaoise) and Fran Dowling (Camross).

Brennan was the choice of the three-man selection committee, which consisted of Niall Rigney, Declan Conroy and Eamon Jackson.

The eight-time All-Ireland champion replaces Eamonn Kelly, who left the role after failing to lead Laois to the Joe McDonagh Cup final in 2018.
