PJ O’Mullan has stepped down as Antrim hurling manager

The Antrim hurlers have been dealt a blow with the news that manager PJ O’Mullan has decided to step down from his post as county hurling manager.

The Loughgiel man, who won an All-Ireland club title with the Shamrocks in 2012, managed Antrim for just five competitive games in the National League before stepping down.

The news broke today when the county board released the following statement, signed by County secretary Frankie Quinn.

“At a meeting earlier today in the offices of Antrim GAA the current senior hurling manager, PJ O’Mullan, has decided to step down from his post due to personal circumstances.

“PJ would like to thank the back room team and the county board for their support and assistance during his time in charge. The county board would like to thank PJ and his back room team for their efforts and wish PJ the best of luck for the future.

Antrim GAA will meet to consider its options regarding the management of the team for the upcoming Christy Ring campaign.”

This news came in the aftermath of a disappointing league campaign in which Antrim failed to gain promotion back up to division one.

Antrim begin their bid for promotion back to Division 1B this weekend.

John Hughes laments the fall from grace for Antrim hurling and explains why it will have a knock on...

"They maybe need to [...] build their reputation for themselves as people as well as hurlers.”
