Anthony Daly Set To Return To Inter-County Coaching

Anthony Daly Set To Return To Inter-County Coaching

Clare hurling legend Anthony Daly is set to return to the inter-county coaching scene, becoming a member of the Antrim management team.

The Irish News are reporting that Daly has been in discussions with the Antrim county board for a number of weeks now, and he is set to join manager Neal Peden's backroom team. He will initially travel to the Ulster county once a week.

Daly has not been involved at inter-county level since leaving Dublin in 2014 after a six year spell as manager. It was a period during which he changed the fortunes of Dublin hurling, winning the county's first Leinster title for 52 years in 2013. He also led them to a national league crown in 2012.

Last year he took the reins at Dublin club Kilmacud Crokes, losing the county final to Ballyboden St Enda's. He was also linked with a return to the Dublin job, a position which ultimately went to Cuala manager Mattie Kenny.

Antrim had a disappointing year in 2018, winning only two of five games in the Joe McDonagh Cup. They also suffered relegation from Division 1B of the league.

Recently re-appointed Tipperary boss Liam Sheedy has been part of the Antrim set-up for the past couple of years, and it is believed he had a major role to play in attracting Daly to the county.
