Roscommon ladies football manager Diane O’Hora has resigned from the role as of last night, and the executive of Roscommon LGFA have begun their search for her replacement in advance of the relegation playoff against Longford in a fortnight’s time.
A statement from Roscommon LGFA read:
Roscommon LGFA are saddened to announce that intermediate manager Diane O’Hora has stepped down. County Chairperson Brendan Cregg said Diane’s decision was regrettable and that he wanted to convey sincere thanks to the manager and her backroom team, wishing them the very best of luck going forward. The process of discussing the appointment of a new manager will begin right away.
The decision follows last Sunday’s 3-8 to 1-7 defeat to Laois in the group stages of the TG4 intermediate championship, a result which ensured that Roscommon finished bottom of their group in the championship and condemned the county to the relegation playoffs. This was the fourth competitive defeat in a row for the team in all competitions, following league defeats to Sligo and Laois, and a first round championship loss to Kildare.
