Continuity for Whitegate with Fahy staying on as senior manager

in Home/Sport by

Whitegate have opted for continuity as they stick with the same management of their senior hurlers for 2021.

Terence Fahy remains in the role of manager with the North-East Clare side. The former manager of Laois club Borris-In-Ossory Kilcotton has played a key role in the improvements of St Josephs Tulla in recent years with the secondary school reaching the quarter-finals of the Dr Harty Cup under his stewardship last year.

A Munster SHC winner in 1998, Fahy enters his third year as Whitegate manager. Kenneth Doyle and Patrick Minogue will act as selectors for the coming season.

Limerick’s Dave Moriarty will take responsibility for strength and conditioning of the side. He was S&C coach with the Laois hurlers last season while he was part of the backroom team involved with Cork club Glen Rovers as they won back to back senior titles in 2015 and 2016.

In last year’s campaign they lost out to Feakle (0-21 to 0-16) in the opening round before going down to champions Sixmilebridge (0-20 to 1-13) in round 2. In the senior B championship they bowed out when losing to Clarecastle (1-17 to 2-10).

As previously reported by The Clare Echo, Whitegate senior hurler Brendan Bugler has been appointed manager of Offaly side Birr for 2021.

Seamus Hayes is one of the most well-respected local sports journalists in the country. For close to fifty years, the Lissycasey native was Sports Editor of The Clare Champion. Subsequent to his departure from Barrack St, he began writing for publications including The Clare Echo, The Clare People and The Irish Daily Star. He has won multiple awards during his distinguished career including accolades for GAA, Community Games and Camogie coverage.
