Cole steps down as Ramor manager

CAVAN champions Ramor are on the look-out for a new manager after Raymond Cole stepped down after three years at the helm.

Cole led the team to their fifth-ever Senior Championship title in 2021, overcoming a highly fancied Gowna team in a replay encounter on a scoreline of 1-15 to 0-14.

Afterwards they lost an Ulster Championship clash to Kilcoo, and Cole, a native of Ramor, has now decided the time is right to step aside.

Elsewhere in the Breffni county, Cavan legend Jason O’Reilly has returned for a second stint at Cavan Gaels. He led the Gaels to a league and championship double in 2017, and they even reached the Ulster final, losing to a formidable Sleacht Néill outfit.

Former Monaghan captain Owen Lennon is embarking on a new challenge as joint manager of Kingscourt Stars alongside his cousin Brendan. Lennon, who skippered Monaghan to the Ulster title in 2013, has managed his native club Latton in recent years.

Kevin McDonnell is back in charge of Lavey, while Jimmy Higgins remains in charge of a talented Crosserlough team, who will want to get back to the top end of senior championship football after failing to make it out of the group stages in 2021.

It’s no big surprise that Darragh McCarthy is staying in charge of Intermediate champions Butlersbridge. Castlerahan, who were relegated from the top flight, have appointed Brian Donohoe as their manager.

He took the Ballinagh team last year. Jody Devine and Keelan Melaniff remain at the helm at Killygarry, while Lacken and Mullahoran are currently searching for a new management team.
