Former Kilkenny star and recent Laois manager Eddie Brennan has taken a coaching role with the Cuala hurlers for the 2021 season, while John Twomey will manage the side.

Brennan was in charge of Laois for their recent All-Ireland campaign, however, the eight-time All-Ireland winner stepped down from the post after two years in charge.

Laois were beaten by Dublin in the Leinster Championship this year, having a recorded a shock victory over the Metropolitans last season, before pushing Clare all the way in the qualifiers, losing by a single point. 

Brennan apologised to the Laois County Board earlier this month after a private conversation, in which he was critical of some officers, was accidentally published by the GAA Hour podcast.

Twomey hurled for Dublin, losing two Leinster championship finals and also won a Dublin title in hurling and football with his club, Erins Isle.

Cuala are one of the top hurling sides in Leinster and won this year's Dublin championship before the All-Ireland club championship was scrapped due to Covid concerns.

The Dalkey-based side won back-to-back All-Ireland titles in 2017 and 2018.
