Ryan replaces former manager Kevin Denihan
The Limerick Ladies Football side will be managed by John Ryan for the 2018 season, it has been announced.
After last season’s relegation, Limerick will now play in Division four of the league and in the Junior Championship.
Ryan coached the Limerick minor footballer’s last season but only managed two games in the Munster championships following a win against Waterford and a loss to close rivals Clare in the semi final.
The new man comes into the Ladies football set up following Galbally’s Kevin Denihan’s departure which he described as a frustrating one following his removal.
Jim Moran will act as team coach under Ryan with the pair having previously worked together for the Sigerson Cup side at the University of Limerick.
The former minor manager has also worked with the Limerick U-21 footballers as well as coaching the Mungret St. Paul’s Ladies football team to an Intermediate title.
The Limerick ladies football team begin their league campaign in the new year against Carlow.
