McGrath steps down from Louth post


Pete McGrath has stepped down as manager of the Louth senior footballers.

McGrath agreed a two-year term when he was appointed last September, but the 64-year-old has stepped down after a disappointing season which saw them relegated to Division 3 in the Allianz Football League and suffer heavy defeats to Carlow and Leitrim in the Championship.

"Following on from discussions with our Senior Football Manager, we wish to confirm that Pete McGrath has decided to step down from the position of Manager of the Louth Senior Football Team," a statement from Louth GAA read.

"Louth GAA would like to place on record our appreciation to Pete and his backroom team for all their efforts and commitment with our Senior Squad this year.

"Pete has a great enthusiasm for the game and Louth GAA enjoyed a positive working relationship with him and his Management team.

"We wish him all the very best in his future endeavours."
