Eddie Brennan has been appointed as coach of Dublin hurling champions Cuala. The former Kilkenny All-Ireland winner departed from the Laois manager’s position last week and has wasted no time getting back into the game with the Dalkey club.

He is to be part of a management team with the club’s John Twomey, who hurled for Dublin in the 1980s and ’90s.

Brennan’s appointment to the role with the All-Ireland club champions of 2017 and ’18 was confirmed by the club’s Twitter account on Thursday night. It is another high-profile appointment for Cuala, in succession to Willie Maher the former Tipperary under-21 manager and before him former Galway mentor Mattie Kenny, who led the club to the All-Ireland titles and currently manages Dublin.

The statement reads: “Cuala senior hurlers are delighted to announce the appointment of John Twomey as team manager and Eddie Brennan as team coach. John Twomey has had a long career with the Dublin hurlers. Eddie Brennan is recognised as one of the all-time great forwards to play the game.”
