An All-Ireland medal winner with Galway in 1998 & 2001, Clancy was only installed as Maigh Cuilinn chairman this year. He was still wearing the boots when they tasted All-Ireland Intermediate success in 2008, with his brother Gearoid as captain, in what he puts down as one of his greatest days in the club jersey.
Aside from his playing experience, Clancy has pedigree on the coaching front. He managed his native club a number of years ago with the current boss – and his brother-in-law – Don Connellan as his selector.
He worked with the Galway U21s when they lifted the All-Ireland, before operating as a selector with the senior side under Alan Mulholland and Laois seniors under Justin McNulty. Elsewhere he was involved with DIT’s Sigerson Cup side and managed Garrycastle in Westmeath.
