“Sean has stated today that ‘many of my plans and initiatives unfortunately could not be realised at the club in an appropriate timeframe and due to this I feel is it best we go our separate ways. I would like to thank all the players, coaching and administration staff for their efforts and cooperation during my time at the club and I wish them all the best for the rest of the season.’

“Dundalk FC would like to thank Sean for his dedication, commitment and professional work ethic towards the role of First Team Manager at Dundalk FC. The unprecedented financial times have added significant pressures on the club and have curtailed many of the ambitious plans Sean had for the Dundalk FC.

“Dundalk will continue to prepare for Friday night’s clash with Shamrock Rovers and Assistant Manager, Darius Kearns will take temporary charge of the team.”
