Taggy Fogarty had it right on The Clash Act last week – Eddie Brennan would be snapped up in a heartbeat by a club team following his Laois departure.
It didn’t take long.
Taking to social media, 2020 Dublin senior hurling champions Cuala welcomed the addition of one of the game’s all-time greats.
“Cuala senior hurlers are delighted to announce the appointment of John Twomey as team manager and Eddie Brennan as team coach. John Twomey has had a long career with the Dublin hurlers. Eddie Brennan is recognised as one of the all-time great forwards to play the game.”
The club had invited expressions of interest for the roles of senior hurling manager and coach on 20 November with the closing date for applications last Friday, 27 November.
Brennan and his backroom team departed the Laois setup on Monday 23 November. The eight-time All-Ireland winner with the Cats steered Laois to a Joe McDonagh Cup win in 2019. An interview in released in recent weeks contained ‘off the record’ details of Brennan’s displeasure with the O’Moore’s county board and support for the hurlers.
Twomey replaces the departed Willie Maher, with Cuala having won two AIB All-Ireland Club titles in recent years.
