McCormack to become the new manager of Meath

Former Kildare goalkeeper Shane McCormack is poised to become the new manager of the Meath senior Ladies team.

After successfully managing the Armagh Ladies for the past year, McCormack is set to take over the Meath position. During his time with Armagh, he steered the team back to Division 1 status. He also served as a selector with Armagh in 2021 and 2022, contributing to their victory in two Ulster senior titles.

Meath faced a challenging season this year. Their manager, Davy Nelson, resigned from his position after a loss to Dublin in the Leinster final. This departure occurred just three weeks before the commencement of their All-Ireland series. Nelson had previously assumed the role from Eamonn Murray, who had overseen Meath's remarkable consecutive All-Ireland victories.

Following Nelson's departure, former Meath footballer Jenny Rispin stepped in as an interim coach. Under her leadership, the Royals advanced to the All-Ireland quarter-finals but were beaten by Kerry.

A statement released announced that McCormack's nomination, along with his supporting staff, will be presented for approval at the upcoming county board meeting scheduled for September 11th.

"Meath LGFA wish to announce that Shane McCormack from Kildare, will be proposed by the Selection Committee as our new Senior Football Manager," said the statement on Twitter.
