Laois GAA chairman Peter O’Neill says that the proposed new senior football management team bring a ‘wealth of experience and skills to the county’.
Mr O’Neill was speaking after Laois GAA confirmed that Billy Sheehan and his management team of Chris Conway, Beano McDonald and Gerry McGill had been put forward by the Executive.
Mr O’Neill said: “Billy Sheehan and his management team proposed to the County Committee by Laois GAA Executive will bring a wealth of experience and skills to the county set up.
“As players, their dedication and commitment to the county jersey was second to none and I am sure that the present and future county players will benefit greatly from their experiences and knowledge.
“They will be working to rebuild our county’s fortunes and in line with that, will need time to develop a squad that will bring silverware back to Laois.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Kieran Kehoe, Joe Cunningham, Greg Ramsbottom and Tom Byrne.
“They showed great diligence by working on the selection committee to bring this process forward.”
Sheehan and his team were initially recommended by the Laois GAA selection committee.
That recommendation was rubberstamped by Laois GAA’s executive at a meeting last night.
This will now be put forward for formal ratification at the Laois County Committee Meeting, involving Executive and clubs, on Monday October 18.
