Ennis’ Irene Hehir has stepped down from her role as U17 manager of Treaty Utd.
Appointed manager of the Limerick club’s first season in the Women’s National League, Irene announced her decision to leave the role at the beginning of the month. She was previously manager of Limerick FC’s U17 side.
Irene will continue in her role as Assistant Manager to the Irish women’s U17 team and told The Clare Echo she is looking “to purse other interests in the football environment”.
She admitted that the post with the national side requires a lot of work, the Ei Electronics shift supervisor will be scouting games every weekend as part of the tasks associated with being the Asst Manager.
“I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the club and I wish Treaty Utd’s players, staff and Board the very best of luck for the upcoming season”.
Treaty Utd in a statement paid tribute to the work of the Clare women as they announced her decision to step away from the club. “Irene has led the development of the club’s underage players and we are incredibly grateful for her leadership in this area”.
Capped four times for her country, Irene’s playing days also saw her line out with the Lifford Ladies side that tasted national success at underage and senior level.
