Browne has emerged as a candidate to take over as manager of the Galway senior camogie team and has been interviewed by the Galway camogie board in relation to a position that has been vacant since Mark Dunne’s tenure ended after a single season in charge.

Dunne guided Galway to the semi-final stage of the All-Ireland championship in August where they lost out to eventual champions Cork.

Now Wexford native Browne could be set to replace him. His hurling track record involves a previous stint with the Mayo senior hurlers and at club level he helped guide Ballyhaunis last year, when they lost out in the Connacht intermediate club final after a replay.

Browne had been in charge of the Mayo senior ladies team for three campaigns before stepping down last month. He steered Mayo to the 2016 Connacht title before they contested the All-Ireland final for the first time since 2007 this year.

Dublin ran out victors in that Croke Park clash but Mayo had previously claimed the scalps of Donegal and the reigning title holders Cork in the 2017 championship.
