Moane’s future remains unclear as Cavan ladies boss

By Niall Gartland

IT remains to be seen whether Gerry Moane will still be in charge of the Cavan senior ladies team in 2023 after their county board took the unusual step of advertising his post before seeing out his three-year contract.

Moane has just completed two years at the helm of the Breffni County, but the county board, under the stewardship of new ladies chairperson Jonathan Kane, decided to advertise all posts at inter-county level (u-14, u-16, minor and senior).

All management teams have effectively been forced into reapplying as they were all two years into a three-year contract.

Gaelic Life understands that Moane is understood to be weighing up his options at this juncture.

It’s also unclear why the county board have gone down the route of advertising all positions but it’s understood that it’s caused a degree of disgruntlement.

Highly-rated nutritionist Emma Coyle, who had previously worked with the Galway hurlers, has already left the senior set-up as a result of the move.

Brookeborough native Moane enjoyed a fruitful spell as Tyrone manager before coming on board at Cavan, leading the Red Hand County to the All-Ireland Intermediate title in 2018.

Cavan retained their Senior Championship status this year under his tutelage after a play-off win over Westmeath.
