Turlough O’Brien has stepped down as Carlow Senior Football Manager after 6 years in charge
Carlowgaaa.ie have just released this statement
Due to the reconfigured Inter-County season not set for resumption until mid October, and its inevitable lead into 2021 National League preparations, Turlough has brought forward his decision to step away with immediate effect to facilitate a smooth transition for the new season.
Turlough has served as Carlow GAA’s Senior Football Manager since 2014 and during this period guided us to promotion from Division 4 of the NFL for the first time in over 33 years.
We will never forget the special days in 2017 & 2018, particularly those sweltering evenings in Netwatch Cullen Park, when we took on some of the best the country has to offer under O’Brien’s stewardship.
The most memorable of all however, must be that famous afternoon in Tullamore when the Manager led our team to a famous Championship victory over Kildare en route to the Leinster Semi-Final.
Listen backto that historic victory here :
We here at KCLR thank Turlough for his service and wish him the best in his future endevours
