Seamus McEnaney announced as new Wexford football manager

Seamus McEnaney has been announced as the new Wexford senior football manager.

The former Monaghan and Meath manager will take over from David Power who stepped aside after two years in charge.

McEnaney has been one of the high profile managers in the country during his spell in charge with his native Monaghan and Meath.

Wexford had a hugely disappointing national league campaign under Power, having been relegated to Division 4 in 2015, failing to get an immediate return which was expected.

The county also failed to delivery in the championship losing out disappointingly to Kildare in the provincial quarter-final, before being eliminated from the championship race by Fermanagh in the Qualifiers.

The number one priority for Wexford football will be to achieve promotion back to Division 3. In the championship Wexford have been drawn against Carlow with the eventual winners coming up against reigning Leinster and All-Ireland champions, Dublin.
