KILKENNY great Eoin Larkin will prowling the sidelines of Carlow in 2021 after this year’s beaten Senior Hurling finalists Ballinkillen landed a major coup by appointing him as their manager.
Larkin has one of the all-time great hurling CVs, winning eight All-Ireland titles and ten Leinsters during his 11 years with the Cats, which ended when he retired from inter-county hurling in 2016. He also scored nine points and was man of the match when his club, James Stephens, won the 2005 All-Ireland final and he was awarded All-Stars in 2008 and 2009, and was named hurler of the year in 2008 as well.
“We are delighted to have someone of Eoin’s experience,” said Ballinkillen Chairman, Brendan Leen.
