Shane Ronayne has been announced as Cork’s new women’s football manager.
Ronayne has extensive experience on the sidelines, having recently taken on the Waterford Men’s team in 2021.
Previously, he had guided Tipperary to the 2019 All-Ireland Women’s Intermediate Football Championship title, as well as success with Cork club Mourneabbey.
Following his departure from Deise County last week, he was confirmed by the Lee-siders on Monday night.
“After a meeting of the LGFA Cork, the entire executive and board of directors ratified Shane Ronayne and Cork’s head football coach,” a statement read.
âIt has been ratified for a three-year term. We wish Shane, his back-team and the players the best of luck. We want to thank everyone who was involved in the selection process. And Ephie Fitzgerald and his backend team, thank us for all of your hard work and dedication to the senior Cork team over the past six years. “
Cork left the 2021 All-Ireland Championship in the semi-finals, with a shock loss to future winners Meath after extra time.
The Rebelettes, who won their last title in 2016, hope to regain the Brendan Martin Cup under Ronayne in the years to come.
