TJ Ryan has stepped down as manager of the Limerick hurlers.

The Limerick county board has confirmed the departure in the wake of last Saturday's disappointing All-Ireland qualifier defeat to Clare in Thurles.

After three years in the role, Ryan had hinted that he was prepared to step down following Saturday's loss, saying that he had taken the Limerick side as "far as he can".

The Limerick County Board confirmed: "CLG Coiste Contae Luimni would to like to confirm that TJ Ryan today Monday July 11th 2016 has informed the Officers of CLG Coiste Contae Luimni that he will not be going forward as Limerick Senior Hurling Manager for the 2017 Season.

"CLG Coiste Contae Luimni would like to thank TJ for his commitment and time given over his three year term as Limerick Senior Hurling Manager. We would also like to wish TJ and his family the very best into the future."
