Tipperary man Willie Maher has been reported as the lead runner to fill the vacancy left by Chedder Plunket. 

The Irish Examiner yesterday reported that  Willie Maher is considered a strong candidate to take over as Laois's senior hurling manager.

The 43-year-old was also a selector with Laois Minor Hurling selector Derek McGrath in Waterford in 2014 and brought Cuala to Dublin SHC titles in 2019 and ‘20 has been a coach to Dublin’s minors alongside manager Shay Boland in the late 2000s.
