Killkenny’s Eddie Brennan is poised to become the new Laois Senior Hurling Manager.
A selection committee consisting of former James Stephens Manager Niall Rigney, Loretto vice principal Eamon Jackman and Declan Conroy have identified Brennan as the preferred candidate.
Brennan’s name will now go to the Laois county board before being ratified.
It would be Brennan’s first Senior Inter County Management post.
The Graigue Ballycallan man was in charge of the Kilkenny team which reached last years All Ireland Under 21 Championship Final.
