Former Waterford defender Tom Feeney has joined Liam Cahill's Déise hurling backroom team as selector for the 2021 season. 

His Ballyduff Upper club-mate Stephen Molumphy has stepped away from the set-up due to work commitments with the Irish Defence Forces in the UK.

Feeney was part of the Déise senior squad from 1993 to 2008. The full-back won Munster minor, under-21, and senior medals as well as a National League title. 

He was an All Star nominee in 1998 when Waterford reached the All-Ireland semi-final under Gerald McCarthy. He was nominated again during Justin McCarthy’s tenure in 2002 and 2006. He came on as a second-half substitute in the 2008 All-Ireland final loss to Kilkenny.

Feeney was part of the selection panel in 2019 that chose Cahill to take over as Waterford manager.
