Brian Hanley

  • Galway minor hurling boss Brian Hanley praises underage selectors for the county wide reach of his player base.

    After sealing a third consecutive All-Ireland in-a-row against the Cats yesterday, the minor hurling manager believes talk of panelists coming from football strongholds is blown out of proportion.

    On last nights’ Sunday Game Cyril Farrell made note that the All-Ireland champions had players from traditional football clubs due to men from hurling strongholds ‘marrying in.’

    The minor hurling manager says that if a player is good enough, he will be selected for the team irrespective of where in the county he was born.

  • Galway players will have a role to play in the selection of their manager.

    The Irish Independent reports that a special meeting of the Galway hurling board drew up a representative group tasked with finding a new manager.

    Galway hurling board chairman Michael Larkin confirmed that the players' leadership group would be consulted during the process.

    A meeting of delegates last night decided the process for finding a successor for Donoghue.

    Successful underage managers Jeffrey Lynskey and Brian Hanley are among the prospective candidates for the job.
