Top Cat Cody’s back for another crack at Liam McCarthy – with DJ on the sideline

By COLIN BARTLEY

BRIAN Cody will lead Kilkenny’s hurlers for a 22nd year as manager.

The 11-time All-Ireland winning coach’s ratification for the 2020 season was confirmed at a meeting of the Kilkenny County Board last night.

James McGarry and Cats legend DJ Carey have, as expected, been ratified as selectors for the season. Meanwhile,  Michael Comerford has been named as Strength and Conditioning Coach.

It is the biggest revamp of Cody’s backroom team in six years and follows the departures of long-time assistant Michael Dempsey and former player Derek Lyng.

Lyng has already been confirmed as the Cats under 20s manager for the coming season, while Dempsey’s future engagement in GAA management is unconfirmed as yet.

Michael Comerford has followed DJ from the Kilkenny U20s into the senior set-up, while James McGarry, the former Cats keeper, has been working as one of Brian Cody’s selectors since 2013.

Cody’s ratification sees him return for a 22nd season at the helm. In that time he has overseen 11 All-Ireland wins, nine National League wins and 15 Leinster title wins. As a player Cody picked up three All-Ireland wins, four Leinster titles and two National Hurling leagues, as well as two All-Stars. Amazingly though, the greatest GAA manager of all time has only picked up the manager of the year award once.
