By Cian O'Connell
Ciaran Carey has stepped down as Kerry senior hurling manager.
The Kerry County Board released a statement on Sunday evening confirming the departure of former Limerick star Carey.
Due to increased work commitments, I am unable to give the necessary time required to manage the Kerry senior hurling team for the coming season," Carey said.
"I wish to thank my management team, the full panel of players and the backroom team for their support and commitment in delivering a very successful 2016 season which resulted in Kerry maintaining their Division 1B Allianz League and Senior Championship status.
"I also wish to thank the Kerry County Board for their full support and provision of all the necessary backup required to perform the job. Finally, I would like to wish the Kerry players the very best for the coming season."
