Galway are in the hunt for a new senior hurling manager after Shane O'Neill confirmed he's not seeking a third year at the helm.

The Limerick-native had been in charge since 2019 and watched his side exit the qualifiers at the hands of Waterford this season.

It followed a surprise defeat to Dublin in the Leinster Championship semi-final.

"I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to the Galway County Board and the Hurling Committee for their unwavering support throughout my tenure," O’Neill said in a statement.

"I am extremely grateful to them for their most professional and proactive approach to all matters related to the Galway Senior Hurling Team.

"I wish to acknowledge and commend the efforts of each and every one of the members of the backroom team. You are too numerous to mention but I must especially thank our management team of John Fitzgerald, Lukasz Kirszenstein, Fergal Healy, David Forde and Colm Callanan.

"I would like to thank the players for their hard work and dedication. It was a special privilege to be involved with some of the greats of the game. I wish them every success in the future."
