SEAMUS MCENANEY HAS stepped down as Meath coach, it has been confirmed.

McEnaney this evening released a statement, confirming his departure. It reads as follows:

“I am stepping down as Meath Senior Football Team Manager with immediate effect.

“I want to thank my management team and the Meath players for their huge effort, commitment and loyalty they have given me over the past two years.

“I want to thank the Meath County Board, the Meath Supporters and everyone involved in the GAA in County Meath.”

Earlier in the year, Meath had a disappointing league campaign, suffering relegation to Division 3.

However, they then exceeded expectations in the Leinster SFC, reaching the final, before being beaten by Dublin.

Yet their belated improvement was evidently not enough to prevent McEnaney’s departure.
