Dónal Óg Cusack quits Clare management team
Dónal Óg Cusack has stepped down from his coaching role with the Clare hurlers.
The three-time All-Ireland winning goalkeeper with Cork came on board with then manager Davy Fitzgerald in 2016. He stayed on last year with new co-managers Donal Moloney and Gerry O’Connor.
“I have informed the Clare County board, Clare Senior Hurling management, and players that I will not be resuming my position as coach in 2018,” said Cusack.
“I wish everyone involved the very best both on and off the field. I have many good memories that I carry with me from Clare hurling and I am grateful to all who shared in creating those.”
Cusack also announced he was resigning from his position on the board of Sport Ireland, following criticism over a character reference he wrote for the jailed journalist Tom Humphries.
However, a source told RTÉ that the Cloyne native had planned to end his role with Clare before the controversy.
