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.
