Irish Hurling Manager Davy Fitzgerald made his senior debut during the 1989-90 league. He went on to play a key role for Clare as one of the greatest goalkeepers of his era and won two All-Ireland medals and three Munster medals.

As a member of the Munster inter-provincial team, Fitzgerald has won three Railway Cup medals. He made 60 championship appearances, a record for a Clare player. Fitzgerald retired from inter-county hurling on 31 March 2008. Even as a player, Davy became involved in team management and coaching and subsequently became director of hurling at the Limerick Institute of Technology, guiding the team to two Fitzgibbon Cup titles.

Fitzgerald’s first managerial role at inter-county level was with Waterford in 2008. Fitzgerald stepped down as manager in 2011, having secured the Munster crown the previous year. Just one month later Fitzgerald was appointed Clare manager. In the 2012 season, his first full season in charge, Fitzgerald guided the team to promotion to the topflight of the National Hurling League. The following year, Clare claimed their first All-Ireland title in seventeen years following a thrilling draw and a replay victory over Cork.

The Clare man has also embarked on a very successful TV career as co-founder of Ireland’s Fittest Family and Davy’s Toughest Team.
