McMenamin steps down as Fermanagh manager

RYAN McMenamin’s time as Fermanagh manager has come to an end as he has stepped down after two years in charge.

The three-time All-Ireland winner has informed the players of his decision to resign, and the county board have confirmed the departure.

“We have been notified last night by Ryan McMenamin that he is stepping down from the position of Fermanagh Senior Football Team Manager,” a statement read.

“Fermanagh County Committee would like to thank Ryan and his entire backroom team for all their hard work and commitment over the last two years.

“We wish Ryan and all members of his backroom team every success for the future.”

McMenamin will look back on his tenure with some regrets as they were badly hit by Covid-19 at the tail-end of the 2020 season and were subsequently relegated to Division Three.

They also failed to win a championship match in either season, but they did have muster a respectable league campaign this year, reaching the Division Three promotion semi-finals, where they lost to Offaly.

McMenamin spent four years in all with Fermanagh as he was Rory Gallagher’s assistant in 2018 and 2019.
