Justin McCarthy's position as Limerick Senior Hurling manager has once again come under fire after the required number of five clubs have submitted letters to request a special County Board meeting.

Justin McCarthy's position as Limerick Senior Hurling manager has once again come under fire after the required number of five clubs have submitted letters to request a special County Board meeting.

Up to eight clubs are expected to have written to County Board secretary Mike O'Riordan to have McCarthy's future debated at special meeting.

Garryspillane were the first club to correspond with O'Riordan, with other influential clubs in the Treaty County also rowing in behind them.

Adare, Ahane, Croom, and Patrickswell - all of whom have players on the 2009 striking panel; have also backed Garryspillane's request for a vote.

It has also been reported that several other clubs are currently in the process of submitting other notices to the board either next Tuesday or Thursday, the projected date for the meeting.

A discussion and vote on McCarthy's future could only take place after at least five clubs had contacted the County Board to request a special meeting.

Last December a voted of confidence was taken in retaining the services of McCarthy, but subsequent events and poor results in the Waterford Crystal Cup and Allianz National Hurling league have forced a rethink.
