Laois are on the lookout for a new senior hurling manager after Eamonn Kelly decided against seeking a new term.

The former Kerry and Offaly manager has completed two years in the O'Moore hotseat having taken over from Cheddar Plunkett at the end of 2016.

"I have decided not to seek another term as Laois hurling manager," said Kelly in a statement tonight. "I have enjoyed the last two years and made many friends. I am disappointed not to have built on the progress we made last year and I wish Laois every success going forward.

"I want to thank my management team of Owen Coss, Davy Hogan and Conor Gleeson and the players for their effort and dedication, and also my backroom team, all of whom have given everything for the cause of Laois hurling.

"Finally, I want to thank Laois County Board. I have at all times found them up-front, honest and supportive in every way."
