Moynihan takes the Reins in Kildare

Daniel Moynihan has been appointed as the new Kildare Senior Manager and is a native of Co. Galway. He has been involved in Gaelic football from an early age. He played for his club, Ballinasloe at all levels and progressed into management enjoying success from U14 to Junior level with the Ladies football teams. From there he progressed to Inter County management taking the Galway Minor Ladies team manager position. It was a successful period where he led them to four Connacht, one All Ireland Runners Up, and two All-Ireland A Titles in five years.

Daniel has a Degree in Health, Fitness and Leisure and a Postgraduate Diploma in Physical Education.

Daniel has followed Kildare Ladies Football for the last few years watching their success in the Intermediate All Ireland and watched a number of their games last year.

Daniel “hopes to bring a fast aggressive style of football to Kildare Intermediate team and sees it as a rebuilding process after relegation last year. The process will take time and patience but the talent is most definitely out there to bring together players from every corner of the county and assemble a strong squad of players to tackle the Intermediate division. The aim is to bring success back to Kildare Ladies and move up the ranks in the league and championship over the next two years.”

Additionally Daniel brings Nioclas Mac Donnacha and Ronan Cogavin as part of his management team. Nioclas has worked with Daniel for many years and is a highly accomplished coach. He brings a drive and high tempo to training sessions ensuring that he gets the best out of the players. Ronan brings analytical skills to the Kildare team. He has watched a huge amount of Gaelic football and has worked in a scouting role for Daniel previously. Daniel is delighted to have secured both Nioclas and Ronan for the year ahead

Daniel is to meet with the Kildare LGFA Executive next week and then arrange open sessions for all interested in representing their county to come along and start the journey to future success.
