Kilkenny man takes charge of Carlow hurlers for coming year
Carlow GAA have turned to a Kilkenny man to take the reigns as Senior Hurling Manager for the coming season with an eye in returning to the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship.
Tom Mullally, a native of Glenmore, is no stranger to the Carlow GAA having had great success at club level for one of the Dolmen county’s elite clubs.
Mullally led Mount Leinster Rangers to a Leinster Club title in 2013, eventually losing the All-Ireland club title to Portumna from Galway the following year. While more recently he has been a selector on the Carlow U20 team.
The Kilkenny native also had a spell as Wexford’s U21 manager in 2018, losing the Leinster Final to Galway.
Mullally takes the reigns from former Tipp star, Colm Bonnar, who stepped down last November. In his time in charge, Carlow won a Joe MacDonagh Cup and played in the 2019 Leinster championship.
Carlow GAA took to Twitter to confirm the appointment and said: “We are delighted to announce this evening that Kilkenny native Tom Mullally has been ratified as Manager of our Senior Hurling Team.
“We wish Tom and his soon to be announced Management Team every success,” the statement concluded.
