Ephie Fitzgerald appointed new Cork ladies football manager.


The Turners cross native, former Cork senior footballer and ex Nemo player and club Munster Senior Championship winning manager, was ratified as Ryan’s successor at a GPC meeting of the Cork Ladies Football Board last night.

PRO of the Cork Ladies Football Board Pat Culloty speaking after the meeting said:
“These are exciting times for everyone involved and we all have high hopes and expectations. There’s a busy few months ahead with the league starting on Sunday, but we wish Ephie all the best and we look forward to working with him.”

He succeeds Eamonn Ryan who won ten senior All-Irelands as Cork ladies football manager from 2004 to 2015. Ryan announced his departure in December, with the intention to take a selector role with Cork men’s senior footballers.
