Bye bye Banty, bring back Boylan: Meath move to get rid of McEnaney
Meath county bosses will move to replace Seamus McEnaney with Sean Boylan at a meeting of the full county committee next Wednesday.

SEAMUS MCENANEY’S REIGN as Meath manager looks to be nearing a messy endgame after county bosses publicly moved to sack him and bring back Sean Boylan as his replacement.

McEnaney has been under increasing pressure following Meath’s disastrous National Football League campaign and relegation to Division 3.

A short statement issued this morning said that the county management committee would recommend the termination of his contract at a meeting of the full county committee next Wednesday, 18 April, and recommend Boylan as his replacement.

Boylan managed Meath to eight Leinster Championships and four All-Ireland titles during his 23 years in charge from 1983 to 2006.

The move to oust McEnaney could yet drag on, despite this latest public vote of no-confidence from Coiste Bainistí.

A source close to “Banty” told yesterday that he is determined to see out his full two-year term which ends this summer, and that he had the full backing of the playing squad and management team.
