Eight-time Kilkenny All-Ireland winner and former Hurler of the Year Eoin Larkin will coach the Wicklow senior hurlers in 2021.
The James Stephens clubman has opted to help out the Christy Ring Cup side in an advisory and coaching role as manager Eamonn Scallan assembles a new management team for the season ahead. Larkin will combine with his duties as manager of Carlow outfit Ballinkillen.
"The eight-time All-Ireland winner and two time All-Star brings a wealth of experience to the role," Wicklow GAA welcomed Larkin's appointment.
"Best of luck for the year ahead Eoin."
Meanwhile, the Wicklow U20 footballers will be managed by the county's only All-Star Kevin O'Brien, as confirmed at a board meeting on Wednesday night.
