Carlow GAA have announced that Kilkenny native Tom Mullally will take over as Carlow Senior Hurling manager.
Mullally has previously guided Mount Leinster Rangers to Leinster success in 2013, in the process becoming in the first senior provincial title-holders in all of Carlow’s hurling history and shocking Oulart the Ballagh in the process on a scoreline of 0-11 to 0-08.
In 2014 Mullally would falter on the cusp of All-Ireland success by losing to Portumna in the final.
He also was involved with the Clara side who claimed a historic Kilkenny senior title victory in 2013 and 2015. Most recently the Glenmore man was a selector for the Carlow U20 team.
