Ex Laois Hurler Steps Away From Roscommon Job

Ciaran Comeford took over three years ago.

Former Laois player Ciaran Comeford has stepped down as manager of the Roscommon senior hurlers. 

The Borris-Kilcotton club man took over in November 2017 and steered the Rossies to division 3A league success last season. 

Comeford had already decided that it would be his last year at the helm but brought his decision forward to allow the appointment of a new boss before the beginning of the Christy Ring cup in September. 

Speaking after the announcement Roscommon Hurling Board Chairman Christy McDermott said:

“I’d like to thank Ciarán for his efforts over the past two and half years with the Roscommon team. I fully respect the decision he has made, as the Christy Ring Competition will not now commence until much later in the year. Ciarán feels this is a more appropriate time to step down as it allows a new manager to prepare for the Christy Ring Cup and the new season which will follow on so closely. We had some good days including our winning of the Division 3 A National League last year. For those, we thank you Ciarán”.
