SHANE RONAYNE WILL take charge of the Waterford men’s footballers for the next two years after being unanimously put forward for ratification at a meeting of The Déise’s management committee tonight.

Ronayne stepped down as manager of the Tipperary ladies footballers in December after a stint during which The Premier won four national titles in as many years under his tutelage.

The Mitchelstown native took over an intermediate Tipp side playing Division 3 football in 2017, but left them in the top tier of the league and with a spot in the All-Ireland senior championship.

Ronayne also won back-to-back All-Ireland club titles in charge of Mourneabbey in 2018 and 2019.

Waterford are the last county to appoint a manager ahead of the 2021 inter-county football season.
