Monaghan appoint new Manager


Appoint new Manager

Paraic Treanor is the new manager of the
Monaghan Ladies Football team. After a County
Board meeting on Tuesday night, Treanor was appointed
to take over from John McAleer, who had switched
allegiances to manage Ulster rivals Tyrone.

Treanor is still playing club football for the
Gael Truagh club and has managed the Gale Truagh
Ladies team for the last three seasons. He has
represented the county at minor, U-21 and senior

Speaking after the announcement, Monaghan PRO
Alan Gunne stated this was a positive development
for the county. “Hopefully this will be the start
of a new era for Monaghan Ladies Football and
everyone who supports the Monaghan Ladies wishes
Paraic the best. I hope the players get right
behind Paraic and give him their full backing”,
he said.

Monaghan are the current Ulster champions and
lost this year’s All-Ireland quarterfinal to Kerry.
The golden era for Monaghan Ladies was the mid
1990’s when they competed in five consecutive
All-Ireland finals where they met arch rivals
Waterford in four of the deciders, winning two
in a row in 1996 and 1997.

Monaghan lost the 2002 All-Ireland final to Mayo
but have been in something of a transition of
late. Monaghan have a team that contains star
players Jenny Greenan, Edel Byrne and Niamh Kindlon
and are capable of challenging for an All-Ireland
if young players are brought through.
