ANTRIM have confirmed their impressive new camogie management team, taking over from Paul McKillen and Jim McKernan.
The duo stepped down after leading the Saffrons to All-Ireland glory this season.
The new management team will be headed up by former player Elaine Dowds – a selector last season – and will include former Antrim goalkeeper Shane Elliott who will continue in his role as Kevin Lynch’s senior hurling manager.
Joe Passmore, an All-Ireland Club winning manager with Derry side Eoghan Rua, is also part of the ticket. Brian Kearney, who managed Cushendall camogs, completes the management team.
It caps off a period of change across Ulster camogie.
Antrim man Paul Donnelly took over their Ulster rivals Down, with Sleacht Néill coach and Antrim native Michael Glover in as coach.
In Derry, former Down hurler Martin Coulter has taken over as manager, with Danny McGrellis in as trainer.
