John Ryan is to continue in the hotseat as Lissycasey senior football manager.
Having come within a point of last year’s senior championship winners Kilmurry Ibrickane by reaching the semi-final stage, Lissycasey will be determined to build on that progress in 2021.
To do that, they have opted to maintain their outgoing management team which is headed by Limerick native John Ryan. Living in Cratloe since 2006, Ryan was in charge of the Treaty County side which won the All-Ireland Junior ladies football title in 2018.
Selectors David Pyne and Noel Finnucane along with coach Liam O’Connell and strength and conditioning coach Darragh Kennedy have all committed to the cause while Jimmy Collins a two-time Junior medallist with Lissycasey in 1979 and 1981 has been added to the management team and will retain his equivalent role with the club’s junior team.
Lissycasey advanced to last year’s semi-finals following wins over Cratloe and Kilmihil, their displays were commended by the limited amount of spectators that could attend their games in Cusack Park and Kilrush. The displays of centre-back Seamus Collins earned him a place on the team of the year as selected by contributors to the Eoin Brennan presented podcast ‘Talking Balls’ on Clare FM while Aaron Griffin was rewarded with a call-up to Colm Collins’ county panel.
