Meath let manager O'Brien leave

The Meath County Board meeting in Navan last night turned down the management committee’s recommendation that Eamonn O’Brien continue into a third term as the Royals’ senior football team manager.

Some delegates were critical of the slowness to make changes during the games against Louth and Kildare.

Central Council representative Brendan Cummins said Meath would be a laughing stock if they got rid of a man who had guided the county to All-Ireland semi-final and quarter-final places as well as the provincial success.

However, the vote was 32 to 29 against O’Brien.
