Greene steps down from Mount Sion post

Jim Greene has stepped down as manager of Waterford hurling champions Mount Sion.

Greene steered the side to three consecutive county titles and a Munster provincial championship but suffered heartbreak this year and last.

In 2003, the Deise side were hot favourites to advance to the All-Ireland final, but were humbled by Antrim side Dunloy.

This year, Sion surrendered a seven-point lead against Tipp champions Toomevara to lose the Munster final by a point.

Paraic Fanning will take over as manager of the side that includes county stars Ken McGrath and Tony Browne.
