James Murrihy is to continue as manager of the Kilmurry Ibrickane senior footballers while their neighbours St Joseph’s Miltown have a new management in place for 2023.

For a second year, Murrihy will be in charge of the sixteen time champions. He has assembled a new backroom team for the coming year.

Galway’s James Mannion who has coached the Leitrim U20 footballers and St Jarlath’s College senior team will coach the Bricks this year. Kilmihil’s Enda O’Halloran who worked as a selector for Murrihy with the Clare intermediate ladies footballers and the Kilmihil senior ladies football side links up with him again, as selector.

Gary Sexton is the S&C coach with Diarmuid Whelan remaining involved for stats and video analysis.

Former Clare footballers Odran O’Dwyer a seven time senior championship winner the club and David Russell who has senior championship medals from 2003 and 2005 where he played a central role with St Senan’s Kilkee have not returned to the management. Kevin Sexton has also left his role as selector.

Ex Dublin and Clare coach, Mick Bohan has had an involvement with the club’s senior side in recent years including last season. It is unclear at yet if he will be part of the backroom team for 2023.
