"It is with great regret today that we learned of the death of legendary hurling coach Sean 'Georgie' Leahy a man who gave so much of his time to the promotion of our game at both Club and County level. Amongst his many achievements was that of being Manager and sole selector with his own club team James Stephens when they became the first team from Leinster to win the Senior Club All Ireland Title. Subsequently he went on to manage the Glenmore club team to their All Ireland success also. With Kilkenny he was a selector with Senior, U21 & Minor winning teams and also managed Laois,Offaly, Westmeath and Waterford senior county teams. 'Georgie was an immensely popular figure with all whom he came in contact with and will be greatly missed by hurling people everywhere.
We extend our deepest sympathy to his wife Rita, and to the Leahy family at this sad time. [Pic - courtesy Kilkenny People]
