Laois man appointed new Limerick U-20 hurling boss

Diarmuid Mullins

A month after guiding Limerick to its second consecutive Munster minor hurling title, Diarmuid Mullins has been appointed as the new Limerick U-20 boss.

Mullins will have to do a bit of juggling at the moment as his minor side are due to play Galway in the All-Ireland semi final whenever games are allowed to resume.

Under Mullins, Limerick were 2-22 to 0-25 winners over Tipperary back in the minor final in December.

In 2019, Limerick beat Clare in the Munster final before losing to Kilkenny in the All Ireland semi-final.

The former Portlaoise GAA club man, who won All Ireland minor football titles with Laois in 1996 and 1997, has lived in Limerick for the past number of years where he is principal of the large Crescent Comprehensive secondary school.

Mullins is involved with the Mungret club on the outskirts of the city and has been over a number of GAA, rugby and soccer teams in Limerick.

Former Limerick hurler Thomas Quaid will also make the move up from minor to the U-20 ranks with Mullins as a coach with John Mescall and Richie Flannery taking up similar roles.

Na Piarsaigh’s Darragh Droog will be the Strength and Conditioning coach for both the minors and U-20s.
