Turlough O'Brien calls time on his six years as Carlow manager


Turlough O'Brien has stepped down as Carlow football manager after six years in charge.

He helped the team to gain promotion from Division Four of the League in 2018 and his team also beat Kildare in the Leinster Championship that summer.

O'Brien says he's vacating the position in order to "facilitate a smooth transition for the new season".

While Carlow have thanked him for his "absolute professionalism, utter dedication and unbridled passion".

"Carlow GAA today announces that our senior football manager Turlough O'Brien has stepped down after six years in charge," Carlow GAA announced of O'Brien's decision.

"Due to the reconfigured intercounty season not set for resumption until mid-October, and its inevitable lead into 2021 National League preparations, Turlough has brought forward his decision to step away with immediate effect to facilitate a smooth transition for the new season.

"The absolute professionalism, utter dedication and unbridled passion which Turlough brought to the senior football set-up over the past six years, alongside his various backroom staff, has undoubtedly elevated Carlow's football status to new heights.

"We take this opportunity to thank him unreservedly for all he has done during his tenure and we wish him every success and happiness for the future."
