Eight time All-Ireland winner Eddie Brennan has been proposed as the new Laois senior hurling manager by the selection committee charged with finding Eamonn Kelly's successor. 

Brennan was the choice of the three man selection committee comprised of Niall Rigney, Declan Conroy and Eamon Jackman who proferred his name to an executive meeting of Laois county board. 

If ratified, Brennan will replace Kelly who has managed Laois for the past two years, failing to lead them to the Joe McDonagh Cup final in a disappointing 2018. 

Brennan, who won eight All-Ireland senior titles with Kilkenny between 2000 and 2011, managed his native county's U21 side for two seasons, guiding them to the 2017 All-Ireland final at the grade before stepping down following the loss to Limerick in that decider.
