AIDAN FOGARTY TO STAY AT THE HELM
Great news for O’Loughlin Gaels as Aidan Fogarty commits to managing the Senior Team for the 2017 season. Aidan steered the club to another Senior Hurling Championship in 2016 building on his success with teams at the club over the last number of years. Nigel Skehan and Michael Holohan will both stay on as team selectors and they will be joined this year by Sean Tyrrell and Maurice Nolan. Michael Comerford remains as the teams Fitness Trainer. Last years selector Derek Shelly has stepped down from his role and O'Loughlin Gaels GAA would like extend its gratitude for the time and committment Derek put in during the successful 2016 season. We wish Aidan and the team all the very best for the coming season. Lovely hurling.
