Borris-Kilcotton appoint former Tipperary and Meath hurler as manager

Eoin Brislane is the new Borris-Kilcotton manager

The Borris-Kilcotton hurlers will have a new manager at the helm in 2019.

Following the departure of Terence Fahy after one season in charge, Tipperary native Eoin Brislane will take over next season.

As a player, Brislane played county hurling for both Tipperary and Meath.

The Toomevara native represented his county at minor and U-21 side – winning a Munster minor title in 1999.

He made his senior debut during the 2003 league before joining the Meath senior team in 2007.

Brislane retired from inter-county hurling in 2008.

At club level Brislane is a two-time Munster medalist, in 2004 and 2006, with Toomevara. In addition to this he has also won seven club championship medals.

Since retiring from the game, Brislane became involved in coaching and managed the Tipperary senior and intermediate camogie teams.

He is said to have conducted a few training sessions with Clonad this year too.

Borris-Kilcotton last won the Laois championship in 2016 – their one and only victory since the two clubs amalgamated.

This year, they reached the semi final where they were desperately unlucky to lose out to eventual winners Camross.
