Meath have a new manager after the unanimous appointment by the county board of Mick O’Dowd. He is the fifth man to manage The Royals since the departure of Sean Boylan seven years ago.
A spokesperson for the board commented that the county’s senior football team had been ‘chopping and changing managers’ for quite a while now and it was time to let the new man get on with the job of bringing some continuity back to Meath.
The fact that there was not one vote against his appointment underlines the fact that the county board think very highly of O’Dowd and the strong backroom team he has assembled.
After a distinguished career at club and at county level as a player for Meath, county board secretary, Cyril Creavin said that they had appointed the right man in O’Dowd.
Trevor Giles and Sean Kelly were also appointed as selectors while Colm Brady looks on course to be the team’s new physical trainer.
