DAVID SULLIVAN and his entire management team have stepped down from the Scariff/Ogonnelloe senior camogie set-up.

Lorrha native Sullivan guided the East Clare side to their second ever county and provincial titles having taken over the role at the beginning of last year.

He was joined in his management team by JP Houlihan (Lorrha), Alan Gorman (Portumna), Ronan Moore (Lorrha) and David Broderick. Their departure was announced to panellists in recent weeks with those in Clare camogie circles very surprised by the announcement. The outgoing management were not present at the medal presentation to honour the county and provincial success in Hotel Woodstock last Saturday.

A spokesperson for Scariff/Ogonnelloe camogie club said the outgoing management were “unable to commit” to remain on for 2022. “To say they went the extra yard for the players and the club is an understatement. The commitment, work ethic, attention to detail and drive shown by the management team was reflected by the players on the pitch”.

However, despite the rhetoric surrounding commitment, Sullivan is involved with two teams this season, one senior hurling club in Offaly and an intermediate camogie side in Galway which brings into question the club statement.

Across the senior scene in Clare, there are plenty of new management teams in place. Three-time senior championship winning manager, Eugene Foudy has departed his role in Inagh/Kilnamona, he has since joined the county management. Newmarket-on-Fergus are also adapting to change with Brian Enright stepping down as manager along with members of his coaching ticket. Without a win in the past two seasons, St Josephs Doora/Barefield have a new management in place, Martin Moloney and Munster SFC winner Kieran O’Neill are in charge succeeding the team which included current county senior selector Ann Marie McGann.
