Donal Moloney and Gerry O'Connor have been confirmed as joint managers of the Clare senior hurling team.

The pair have been appointed to succeed now Wexford boss Davy Fitzgerald, who stepped down last month after five years in charge.

Moloney and O'Connor have been given an initial two-year term with the county after they helped the under-21s to a hat-trick of All-Ireland titles between 2012 and 2014. 

The pair are set to be joined by Donal Og Cusack in their backroom team.

Meanwhile, Colm Collins has been retained for another season as manager of the Clare footballers.
