Former Mount Leinster Rangers manager Tom Mullally is the new man at the helm of the Carlow senior hurlers.

He takes over from Colm Bonnar, who stepped down in November after a successful tenure that saw the Barrowsiders play in the Leinster SHC and claim Joe McDonagh and Christy Ring Cup success. 

Kilkenny native Mullally led Mount Leinster Rangers to a provincial title in 2013 ahead of reaching the All-Ireland final in 2014, where they lost to Portumna. He also had a spell in charge of the Wexford U21s in 2018, a year where they lost narrowly to Galway in the Leinster final.

In 2020, Mullally was involved with the Carlow minors and managed Naas.
