  • 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.
