FORMER WEXFORD MANAGER Liam Dunne has taken on a new challenge for the coming season with Dublin club Ballinteer St John’s.
The Model County legend’s five-year tenure as Wexford boss ended last season and Davy Fitzgerald was appointed as his successor last October.
Oulart-The Ballagh man Dunne is now keeping himself busy with Marlay Park-based St John’s, who had a disappointing season in 2016 under former Kildare manager Brian Lawlor.
St John’s were relegated from Division 1 last season but retained their senior ‘A’ status following a relegation play-off victory against St Pat’s, Palmerstown.
That came on the back of heavy round-robin defeats at the hands of club All-Ireland finalists Cuala, Kilmacud Crokes and St Vincent’s.
Dunne, a three-time All-Star and All-Ireland winner in 1996, brings vast managerial experience to Ballinteer, at club and county level, having coached Oulart-The Ballagh to three successive Wexford titles from 2009-2011 before taking charge of the Model County senior side.
