Hogan nominated to captain Kilkenny

Thursday, March 24, 2011

Brian Hogan has been nominated by O’Loughlin Gaels to captain the Kilkenny Senior hurlers in 2011.

Hogan was on the O’Loughlin Gaels team that lost the AIB GAA All-Ireland Club final to Clarinbridge on St Patrick’s Day, but as county champions the Club retains the right to nominate the county side’s captain.

The 29-year-old will take over from TJ Reid, who captained Kilkenny last year as the Cats finally relinquished their All-Ireland title to Tipperary after four successful campaigns.

Hogan is a highly respected player within Kilkenny hurling circles and has been a member of Brian Cody’s squad since 2004.

As well as three Kilkenny county titles with O’Loughlin Gaels, Hogan has won four All-Ireland, three Allianz League and six Leinster titles with the Cats.

A medical representative by profession, Hogan missed last year’s All-Ireland final defeat to Tipperary with a shoulder injury.
