Kilkenny Manager Brian Cody says Michael Dempsey’s departure is a huge loss.
The move hasn’t been confirmed yet however Michael and Derek Lyng will leave the backroom team with DJ Carey rumoured to be coming on board.
Brian says Mick Dempsey has brought so much to the county over the years.
He said “Michael’s been with us for so long now, before that with the U21’s, but I mean he’s been working with us in the whole area of strength and conditioning, fitness and in all various aspects from a hurling point of view as well, its well documented what he brought to it”.
“I couldn’t speak highly enough of Michael and what he’s done, and again in a very understated way and a very humble way he worked, he had a huge knowledge of everything that’s involved with it, constantly upskilling himself and keeping ahead of the posse and that”.
