Donal Moloney has decided not to seek another term with the Clare senior hurlers in 2020.

Moloney had declared his interest in the position to the Clare County Board during the summer and has since met with Board officials on two separate occasions to review the 2019 season and to outline his plan and management team for the coming season.

He had been joint manager with Gerry O'Connor - who stepped away from the position himself last month.

The Clare senior hurlers account announced the news on social media today.

"Donal Moloney has informed our senior hurling panel of his decision not to seek another term as Senior Hurling manager. We would like to acknowledge Donal for his contribution to Clare hurling over 12 years. We wish Donal and the management team the very best for the future."

In a statement, Moloney had said uncertainty over the role was behind his decision.

"Due to the ongoing uncertainty over the process of selecting new management and despite the support I have received from the hurling squad, I do not wish to inhibit members of the existing management team and persons who had committed to coming on board for 2020 from missing out on opportunities as other counties put together their coaching teams. As a management team therefore, we have taken the decision to not seek another term.

“On behalf of the management team, I would like to thank the players for creating such a fantastic environment over many years and for the honesty of effort and commitment they have shown to their families, friends, their clubs and to their county. They have brought great honour to the Clare jersey in the 12 years I have been involved in intercounty management since 2007 from U16 level up to the senior team. I wish the group the very best for the future.

“I want to thank CLUB CLARE Hurling Supporters for its invaluable support during the past three years. I also wish the incoming management team the very best for 2020."

The Scarriff clubman, along with Gerry O'Connor, led Clare U21s to three successive All-Ireland titles between 2012 and 2014, before being elevated to the senior job in late 2016.

The front-runners to take over the Banner now include former Clare star Brian Lohan and Louis Mulqueen, who was part of the county's backroom team for their All-Ireland win in 2013.

Clare suffered defeats to Tipperary and Limerick in last year's Munster championship, with wins over Waterford and Cork.
