At last evening’s County Board Meeting, Clare LGFA ratified the appointment of Kildare native and former Louth Ladies Manager Wayne Freeman as the new Manager of the County’s Adult Ladies Football team.  The appointment is for an initial two-year period, with an option of a third, and follows a recent call for applications to lead the Clare Ladies flagship Team.

Board Chairman Sean Lenihan advised delegates that there were a number of applicants for the post from both within and outside the County and thanked the unsuccessful candidates for their interest in the position.  He outlined Wayne Freeman’s considerable experience at both Club and County levels, most recently with Louth LGFA and before that with Laois and Kildare, and felt extremely positive for the future.

Freeman succeeds Evan Talty, who vacated the post after two years at the end of the 2022 Campaign, having narrowly lost out to eventual winners Laois in the TG4 All Ireland Intermediate Semi Final.

Impressing the selection committee with his plans and ambitions for the year ahead, which hopefully will include promotion from Division 3 of the Lidl National Football League and reaching the TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Finall Freeman stated: “I am delighted to be appointed to the role of Clare Ladies Intermediate Manager. My goals and values are shared with the Clare County Board and I am gladly accepting the challenge of bringing future success to Clare Ladies.

“It is an exciting opportunity for me to work with such a talented and ambitious County and I look forward to the journey we are about to undertake together.”

Other members of the Management Team ratified at the meeting include Coaches Lee Hunt and Brian Willis, who have worked with Freeman for over five years, along with Kilmurry-Ibrickane club member Sarah Cunningham as Female Liaison Officer, a role she filled in Talty’s Management Team for the past two years.  Other appointments are expected to follow in due course.
