Two time All Star, Seán Treacy is succeeding fellow Tribesman Gavin Keary as coach of the Clare senior hurlers.
Treacy was introduced to panellists on Sunday last as the squad met up for the first time under Brian Lohan for an early morning training session.
The Clare role will be Treacy’s highest profile coaching post and comes off the back of his involvement with Tipperary club, Kiladangan. The North Tipp outfit lost one senior championship game in 2019, the county final against Borris-Ileigh.
He made his senior inter-county debut for Galway in 1989 and continued to line out in defence until 1996. His club career with Portumna continued until the late nineties while he was coach of their side that won the 2006 All-Ireland club title.
Seán is not the only Galway addition to the management. Keith Carr who was strength and conditioning coach to Kevin Walsh’s Galway senior footballers this year replaces Kelvin Harold who called time on his five year involvement following Clare’s exit from the Munster championship.
Ken Ralph and James Moran were announced as Lohan’s selectors when he was ratified at the October meeting of the Clare County Board.
