Shane Keegan appointed Cobh Ramblers boss
Cobh Ramblers have appointed Shane Keegan as their new manager.
The former Dundalk, Wexford Youths and Galway United boss has signed a one and a half year deal at St Colman’s Park up to the end of the 2023 season.
Keegan replaces Darren Murphy, who departed the club last week.
Speaking on the announcement, Keegan said “I am delighted & excited to come on board as Cobh Ramblers’ new manager.
“To play a part in the club, in this, their 100th year anniversary, was an opportunity that I couldn’t turn down. I look forward to getting straight to work with the players & staff as we all get to know each other over the course of the month of July.
“It would be a huge boost to us to get support out in numbers over the next few games. Then it is up to us to give people a reason to keep coming back. I really hope that I can play an important role in helping to grow Cobh as a club both on & off the field in both the short & long term.
“I would also like to place on record my thanks to the board at Treaty United and wish them the best of luck for the rest of the season.”
Ramblers chairman Bill O’Leary said “We are delighted to have secured the services of a proven, experienced League of Ireland manager. Shane is highly thought of, and we regard him as the right man for the job at this time.
“All of us at the club look forward to working with him.”
Keegan’s first game in charge of Ramblers will be at home to Treaty United on Friday night – Keegan had been working as Treaty’s Academy head.
