Ciarán Carey resigns as Kerry hurling manager

Ciarán Carey has stepped down as Kerry hurling manager after one year in the role, writes Stephen Barry.

The former Limerick hurler said his resignation was caused by “increased work commitments”.

It follows a positive year for the Kerry hurlers, during which they competed in the All-Ireland championship for the first time in 12 years and maintained their status as a Division 1B team in the league.

“Due to increased work commitments, I am unable to give the necessary time required to manage the Kerry Senior Hurling team for the coming season,” Carey said in a statement.

“I wish to thank my management team, the full panel of players and the backroom team for their support and commitment in delivering a very successful 2016 season which resulted in Kerry maintaining their Division 1B Allianz League and Senior Championship status.
