A Castletown man is set to manage the relatively recently formed hurling club of Park-Ratheniska/Timahoe.

David Cuddy has been appointed manager of the newest hurling club in the county.

Former Laois hurler and seven-time county champion Cuddy was involved with his home club Castletown last year and The Harps in 2017. He has also been over a number of Castletown’s underage teams in recent years.

Cuddy will be a busy man in 2019 as he is also taking charge of the Laois U-20 hurlers where he will be joined by Enda Meagher (Rathdowney-Errill), Derek Delaney (Portlaoise) and Chris Murray (Colt) as his selectors.

He also managed the Laois camogie side which won the All Ireland Premier Junior Camogie Championship Final against Roscommon in 2015.

The Castletown stalwart takes over the role from Martin Langton. No selectors have been named alongside Cuddy as of yet.

Park-Ratheniska-Timahoe competed in the intermediate championship last year but were narrowly defeated in the relegation final by Rathdowney-Errill to go back to junior ‘A’.

There is no word yet as to who will manage Castletown for the upcoming year.
