With a minor All-Ireland title to defend and a senior All-Ireland title to try reclaim, the Kilkenny camogie board are sticking with what’s tried and tested for another year.
Following a meeting on Monday night, the county’s camogie board ratified O’Loughlin Gaels clubman Brian Dowling as manager of the Kilkenny senior camogie setup for the 2022 season, marking Dowling’s third season involved with the Cats.
The summer started well for Dowling’s charges with Kilkenny claiming another senior league title, seeing off Galway 1-18 to 1-15 in Croke Park in June.
With an All-Ireland crown to defend, this year’s championship came to a halt at the semi-final stages at the hands of arch-rivals Cork with the O’Duffy Cup ultimately ending up in Galway this summer.
Dowling’s backroom team of Tommy Shefflin, Ray Challenor, Philly Larkin and Pat O’Neill remain on as selectors.
Mike Wall will be looking to spearhead back-to-back All-Ireland titles for Kilkenny’s minor side having been ratified on Monday night also for the 2022 season. Wall returned to the Kilkenny minor setup in December 2020 and will retain selectors Paula Murphy, Clodagh Holohan, Damien Donohue, Sinead Melaniff, Elaine Houlihan and Mary Murphy.
While the senior and minor grade management teams have been confirmed, there is no official word surrounding Kilkenny’s U16s management or whether John Scott will continue as Kilkenny intermediate manager.
