Pressure mounts on Anthony Cunningham

GALWAY County Board officials meet with their senior hurling manager Anthony Cunningham last tonight to discuss the impasse over his re-appointment earlier this week.

On Saturday night county board officials had met with player representatives to hear their concerns and opposition to Cunningham staying at the helm for a fifth year.

Cunningham's future is now in doubt after the squad unanimously passed a motion of no confidence in his stewardship.

Earlier this week, Cunningham was ratified by the county board to continue in his role for the 2016 season.

Cunningham has been in charge of the Tribesemen since 2012 and his first season saw the county win a maiden Leinster title after a comprehensive victory over Kilkenny.

The Cats, however, gained revenge when the sides subsequently met in the All-Ireland final, prevailing after a replay.

Both counties again met in this year's showdown and, despite a strong first-half showing, Galway again fell to the Black and Amber, with Brian Cody's charges powering to victory in the second 35 minutes.
