IT’S BEEN OFFICIALLY confirmed that Eamonn Fitzmaurice will continue as Kerry boss next year.

Fitzmaurice had initially indicated he would consider his future in the role in the wake of Kerry’s All-Ireland SFC final loss to Dublin.

However, Kerry GAA Chairman Patrick O’Sullivan said at the team’s homecoming that Fitzmaurice would not be stepping down from his position, and the decision to retain the coach’s services for one more year was confirmed at a county board meeting this evening.

Meanwhile, also at this evening’s meeting, it was confirmed that Peter Keane would succeed Jack O’Connor as Kerry Minor coach for a two-year term.

In addition, no announcement was made in relation to the county’s Senior Hurling Manager, but a statement added that the appointment of a successor to Eamonn Kelly was imminent and “will be made next week”.
