Limerick seeking expressions of interest for Senior Football Manager Position

Limerick are seeking new management for their return to Division 3 next Spring. 

The Limerick senior footballers are in the search for a new manager it has been revealed this morning.

In a statement released this morning, they are seeking applicants for the position that was held by both Ray Dempsey and then Mark Fitzgerald this year.

“Limerick GAA are seeking expressions of interest for the Limerick Senior Football Managers position.

“Candidates who wish to be put forward for the position must submit their name and details to the Limerick Football Chairman by Friday July 21st at the following email;

Footballchairperson.limerick@gaa.ie.”

Mayo native Dempsey was appointed last year following the news that Billy Lee would be stepping away from the position after six years in charge as Limerick climbed from division four to the second tier.

However, Limerick’s sole victory under Dempsey came in his first game in the McGrath Cup before he parted ways with the side after the fifth round of the league. 

Coach Mark Fitzgerald stepped into the role and was unlucky to miss out on a second successive Munster final after a narrow loess to Clare.

In the Tailteann Cup, Limerick started brightly to top their group but were defeated by Laois in the quarters to end their season.

Now they will be seeking new management for their return to Division 3 next Spring.
