Meath Senior football champions Ratoath have confirmed the departure of David Brady as team manager

The former Mayo star has stepped down after just one season in charge, leaving the Keegan Cup holders needing a replacement to spearhead their latest ‘2 in a row’ bid.

In a statement on their social media pages, Ratoath say Brady is taking up a new position in his professional life, which prevents him continuing in the role

Ratoath have had a big turnaround in managers in recent years..

They’ve won 3 Senior titles in 4 years with 3 different men in charge..

Davy Byrne was at the helm in 2019, before Brian Farrell came in for the success in 2020

A club insider told Meath Live, ‘ Some people were not happy with the clubs Leinster campaign, but ultimately the club statement is 100% accurate David has things going on in his professional life which will consume more time and he just cannot give the level of commitment he feels is required.’

Former Meath star Kevin Reilly is touted to succeed Brady, while former Meath manager and hugely successful club manager Eamonn Barry would also come under consideration.
