SPORT: LAOIS HURLING MANAGER RESIGNS
Seamus “Cheddar” Plunkett has resigned as Laois hurling manager.
The Portlaoise man recently brought the county to the Leinster quarter finals where they’re due to play Offaly on June 7th – but is walking away after two players featured in a club challenge match against his wishes last Monday.
Team trainer Ger Cunningham will take over for their meeting with their neighbours on Sunday week.
Plunkett took over the O’Moore county at a low ebb in 2013 leading them back into division1B and to improved Championship performances.
The county board have released a statement in which they say they look forward to working with him again in the near future.
