MIKE CARMODY has stepped down from his role in the backroom team of the Clare senior hurlers.

Carmody had been the fitness and speed development coach with Brian Lohan’s side since January 2021. He announced in the past fortnight that he would not be continuing in the role for 2024.

On his exit, Mike stated, “After three of the most wonderful years with the most incredible group of players, it was with a very heavy heart that I had to take the decision to step down as a coach to the Clare senior hurlers last week”.

He wished all involved “every success in the year ahead and every best wish into the future. As for me, I look forward to continuing my association with the other teams that I coach and to announcing my latest project in the coming days”.

Carmody founded MYP (Maximise Your Potential) Coaching in 2018. MYP Coaching offers personal training, run coaching plus S&C coaching and is based in Limerick, Ireland. Its ethos is based on a philosophy of helping all individuals to realise their full fitness/athletic potential.

Limerick native Mike has over fifteen years experience as an elite endurance athlete. He is a former Munster senior cross country champion and Irish underage international. He is the winner of 13 Munster athletics titles and 43 Limerick athletics titles.

Prior to joining Lohan’s set-up, Carmody had primarily worked with athletes but also with the Limerick underage hurling academy and numerous GAA teams in Limerick.

In 2022, he was involved with the Feakle hurlers while in the season just gone he was athletic coach with the Éire Óg senior footballers.

An IAAF level 3 athletics coach, Carmody holds qualifications in sports science and personal training from Setanta College.

In September, it was announced that Lohan and his management had secured the services of highly rated Lucasz Kirszenstein as their new strength and conditioning coach. Limerick-based Kirszenstein ended his time with Galway after seven years having been part of their 2017 All-Ireland SHC winning set-up in his first season. He was also an All-Ireland winning S&C coach with Tipperary in 2016.

Adrian O’Brien who was coach of the Ballyea team crowned county champions in 2022 was Clare’s S&C coach this season but left the role at the end of the campaign. Highly-regarded by players, the Kilmallock man has since become the S&C coach with the Tipperary senior footballers.
