Clare GAA are to appoint Terence Chaplin and James Carrig as joint managers of the Clare minor hurlers, The Clare Echo has learned.

Both men were part of Brian Coffey’s large management team this year and are set to make the step-up following the Banner clubman’s decision to step down after one year in the role. Clare suffered an eight point Munster quarter-final defeat to Cork this year.

Former manager of the Sixmilebridge intermediate hurlers and several successful underage sides in the club, Chaplin was one of prominent members of the management side this year. The Clare Echo understands that at a meeting of the Clare GAA Executive on Tuesday that board officials including PRO Michael O’Connor reserved strong praise for Terence.

He will be joined as joint manager by Newmarket-on-Fergus native James Carrig. He was in charge of the Wolfe Tones side that claimed the 2015 Munster club intermediate title and spent the past three seasons in charge of the Crusheen senior hurlers.

Barry Coffey, coach of the Ballyea side that won the 2018 Clare SHC title is to come on board as a coach alongside Alan Duggan who was involved with the three-in-a-row All-Ireland winning Clare U21 teams from 2012 to 2014. Pa McEvoy a former member of the Clare senior hurling backroom team and strength and conditioning coach with the Newmarket-on-Fergus senior hurlers this year is set to be the team’s S&C coach.
