WATCH: Barrett excited to get down to work on Limerick United project

The interim chairman of Limerick United, Conn Murray, has said that League of Ireland football in the county is going to be a ‘bottom up’ reboot with the formation of the new club.

Murray was speaking at the launch of Limerick United at the Castletroy Park Hotel. Among those named as part of the new entity is former Limerick FC manager Tommy Barrett.

He has been announced as the club’s Academy Manager and is looking forward to getting down to work immediately.

“I’m really excited about it, particularly with the coaches that we have identified to come in.

“I think we have to maximise our efforts now and get the best coaches and develop the players properly.

“In fairness, previously, we have developed a lot of players. The players have come through in the past and we would like to acknowledge that as well.”

Barrett also spoke about training facilities, the club staying amateur or semi pro and people rowing in behind Limerick United.
