Bonnar takes charge in Wexford

Former Tipperary star Colm Bonnar has been unveiled as the new manager of the Wexford senior hurlers.

The Cashel King Cormacs clubman replaces John Meyler, who was controversially relieved of his duties by the Wexford county board in October.

Bonnar, who tasted All-Ireland glory with the Premier County in both 1989 and 1991 trained the Waterford side under Gerald and Justin McCarthy.

He also trained his own county in 2004 and 2005 under his former playing colleague, Ken Hogan.

Currently Sport and Development Officer in Waterford IT, under Bonnar’s reign the college have won four of the last six Fitzgibbon Cup titles while he himself captained the team which won the Fitzgibbon Cup in 1995.

A member of one of Tipperary’s most famous GAA families, Bonnar won an All Star in 1988 and captained Cashel King Cormacs to their first county and Munster club senior hurling wins in 1991, which resulted in him captaining the Premier County the following year.
