Decorated Coach Takes The Helm In Edenderry For 2022

Ken Robinson has previous stints in several successful coaching teams.

Edenderry made an appointment with inter-county experience, as they bid to return to the top step in the Offaly senior football championship. 

It's now six years since their last success in 2015 and there has been a feeling for the last two seasons that the parish were ready to come good once more. 

However it hasn't quite materialised and the manner of last year's quarter-final exit at the hands of Ferbane puts the club at a slight crossroads. 

Enter Ken Robinson. 

Robinson was involved most recently as part of Jack Cooney's backroom team last season in Westmeath and has previous experience in the coaching set up of Dublin's hurlers, Ballymun Kickhams, DCU and most successfully, Mick Bohan's Dublin ladies footballers. 

It's a very ambitious appointment by the club and one which will bring a great deal of intrigue to the team in 2022. Robinson's background lends itself to strength and conditioning so expect another level of fitness from the Edenderry panel next year. 

His current day job is in DCU, where he is CEO of their sports department as well as lecturing in UCD.
