Clare senior hurling manager Brian Lohan admits resourcing a top class backroom team is a major challenge for all counties looking to compete at the top level.
The two time All Ireland winner is set to remain in the position until 2024 after getting the backing of the county executive last evening.
At a meeting of the executive of Clare GAA, it was unanimously agreed that the four time All Star full back should be given another term at the helm of the county’s flagship side, with Lohan having informed the board in recent weeks that he wanted a further three year term in charge.
That recommendation will now go to the next full meeting of the county board, where it is expected to be rubberstamped by club delegates.
The Wolfe Tones man was initially appointed to the role in November 2019, and since then has had to contend with two Covid-interrupted campaigns.
