Peter Leahy confirmed as new Mayo ladies senior team manager

WESTMEATH native Peter Leahy has been confirmed as the new Mayo ladies senior football team manager. 

Leahy, who joined previous manager Frank Browne’s set-up as coach during the summer, now takes over the lead role in the county.

“Having made such giant strides under Frank Browne, the county board was eager that the new manager would be able to maintain Mayo’s prominent position and build on Frank’s success,” reads part of a release from Mayo.

Leahy got involved following the Connacht final loss to Galway in July – and Mayo regrouped to reach September’s All-Ireland decider. 

Leahy was previously involved as a physical trainer as part of Peter Clarke’s Mayo backroom team in 2013, when the side reached a National League Final.

He also boasts a strong pedigree at club level and Leahy, a former manager of the Westmeath minor footballers, was joint-manager of the Lake County when they landed the TG4 All-Ireland intermediate ladies crown in 2011. 

Mayo LGFA chairperson Yvonne McEvilly commented: “Our players had a very successful season in 2017, and maintaining continuity and building on that good work is vital.

“Peter Leahy brings a wealth of experience to the role, has extensive knowledge of the game, and has been part of the outgoing management.

“We are confident that the panel will enjoy continued success on the field under the stewardship of Peter and his management team”.

Peter will now focus on appointing his backroom team for ratification, which is expected to contain a mix of established personnel and fresh faces.
