GAELIC GAMES

Donal Moloney has decided not to seek another term with the Clare senior hurlers in 2020.

Moloney had declared his interest in the position to the Clare County Board during the summer but uncertainty over the role is behind his decision not to proceed.

He had been joint manager with Gerry O’Connor – who stepped away from the position himself last month.
