Bonnar departs from Kilkenny post

Colm Bonnar has decided to step down from his club duties with the Kilkenny side in order to focus on preparations with Tipperary

New Tipperary hurling manager Colm Bonnar has decided to step down from his club duties with Kilkenny city side Dicksboro in order to focus on preparations with his native county.

Colm Bonnar has stepped away from his role as coach of the Dicksboro hurling team.

The Cashel King Cormac native was appointed Liam Sheedy’s successor as Tipperary hurling manager last week, as exclusively revealed on OurGame.

It is believed that Bonnar felt he could not juggle his role as Premier County boss and coach of Paraic Fanning’s side over the next number of weeks.

The Kilkenny city side drew with Clara at the weekend, with Bonnar absent having already stepped away.

The Tipperary club championship entered round two of the county group stages this past weekend, with the 1989 and 1991 All-Ireland winner pictured in attendance.

Given the retirement of Brendan Maher and the possibility of more star players ending their careers in the blue and gold shirt, Bonnar will be on the lookout for fresh or unheralded talent.

There is a break in the Tipp hurling championship this coming weekend as football takes precedence, with the final group games in the small ball coming the following weekend.

Thurles Sarsfields are the favourites to retain a title they last claimed in 2017, with reigning champions Kiladangan next on the list, followed by Kilruane MacDonaghs, Loughmore-Castleiney, and 2020 All-Ireland club finalists Borris-Ileigh.
