Offaly look to Sheedy in boss hunt

Offaly are looking to Liam Sheedy to help chart a way forward for their senior hurling team.

The All-Ireland winning former Tipperary manager will head a five-man committee to find a replacement for Brian Whelahan, who resigned after this year's Championship exit.

Sheedy will be assisted by county chairman Padraig Boland, secretary Tommy Byrne and former players Joe Brady and Rory Hanniffy. A recommendation will be brought before the September meeting of the county board.

It's hoped to ratify the appointment at that meeting so as to give the new manager an opportunity to check out available talent in the later stages of the county championship.

It remains to be seen if the committee recommend an outsider or opt for local talent.

If they choose the latter, former All-Ireland winner Danny Owens, who has been very successful with Kilcormac-Killoughey, is likely to be the front-runner for what will be a very difficult task.

Offaly, who lost to Laois in the Leinster quarter-final this year, have not won a provincial game since 2012 and will be in the round-robin section of next year's championship.

The new manager will be the ninth man to hold the position since the turn of the Millennium.
