ANTHONY CUNNINGHAM HAS been confirmed as the new Galway Senior Hurling team manger, according to the side’s official website.
Cunningham will be joined by Tom Helebert and Mattie Kenny as part of the new management team.
The Galway legend was ratified as manager at a convened meeting of the county board earlier this evening.
Cunningham has previously managed the Galway Under-21 side, and he oversaw a successful campaign in which they won the All-Ireland Under-21 Championship earlier this year.
He was also part of the legendary Galway side that won back-to-back All-Irelands in 1987 and 1988.
Earlier this year, Galway hurlers endured a disappointing All-Ireland campaign, and were knocked out in the competition’s quarter-finals by Waterford.
