John Kiely's Limerick welcome two new backroom staff

John Flavin has joined as a coach, while Joe O'Connor is making a return to the team as the High-Performance Manager. O'Connor previously served as the strength and conditioning coach during Limerick's 2018 All-Ireland triumph, taking a hiatus after the 2019 season.

Flavin previously contributed to Clare's All-Ireland-winning hurling team in 2013. In his new role as High-Performance Manager, O'Connor may fill the gap left by the departure of the esteemed sports psychologist Caroline Currid, who played a key role in five All-Ireland-winning seasons with Limerick.

Flavin also previously worked as a selector during John Kiely's tenure as Limerick U21 manager.

In a statement released by the Limerick County Board, they confirmed the inclusion of the two new members in the 2024 season.

"Limerick County Board can confirm the addition of two new members to John Kiely’s management team for the 2024 season," a Limerick statement said.

"John Flavin comes into the set-up as coach and he will be joined by Joe O'Connor, who will return to the management team as High-Performance Manager.

"They will join John Kiely, Paul Kinnerk, Donal O'Grady, Aonghus O'Brien and Alan Cunningham to complete the management team for 2024."

The newly appointed duo joins the successful coaching team led by John Kiely that features Paul Kinnerk, Donal O Grady, Aonghus O Brien, and Alan Cunningham, who are all committed for the 2024 season.
