It has been confirmed that Limerick Hurling Strength and Condition coach Joe O'Connor has tendered his resignation to Limerick County Board. O'Connor, who is a native of Rathkeale, currently lives in Tralee. The former Clare All-Ireland winning S&C coach played a big role in Limerick's 2018 Liam MacCarthy success.
"He has a young family and lives in Tralee and it was a huge commitment for him to come up to Limerick up to four times a week and also on Sunday's for matches. He will be a big loss," said a source close to the Limerick Senior hurling camp.
The Tralee IT lecturer has been with the Limerick panel since the 2016 season, where he was appointed by TJ Ryan. The forward thinking and innovative coach also played a part in the RTE series, Ireland's fittest family.
O'Connor would be the second member of the All-Ireland winning backroom team to step aside following selector Jimmy Quilty's departure last season.
who is our current S&C coach?
S&C, given our current age profile, is crucial to us knocking the dubs off their perch over the next 3 years.
Jason McGahan, an Armagh man. A full-time appointment as head of athletic development and strength and conditioning from the senior footballers down to the underage development squads. Highly regarded and will make a big impact.
