WATERFORD GAA have declined to comment on reports that Davy Fitzgerald could be appointed as the county’s senior hurling manager in the near future.
PRO Taylor Murray declined to comment on who is in the frame for the job when approached on Wednesday. She said that the Waterford county board’s chairman and secretary are part of a committee appointed to find a new manager, along with a former player and an external person.
This four-person group is to come up with a recommended candidate, whose name will go before a future county board meeting.
The third round of the Waterford senior hurling championship is due to take place this weekend.
Fitzgerald managed Waterford from 2008 to 2011, with the county reaching the All Ireland final in his first year, and winning a Munster title in 2010.
Liam Cahill has departed as the Decies manager this year to take up the reins at his native Tipperary.
This year saw Fitzgerald coaching the Cork camogie team, and following last Sunday’s All Ireland final he said he would not be continuing in the role in 2023.
Owen Ryan has been a journalist with the Clare Champion since 2007, having previously worked for a number of other regional titles in Limerick, Galway and Cork.
