The Louth senior footballers will have a new manager at the helm next season after the Louth GAA Management Committee decided not to renew Wayne Kierans' contract.

Kierans was in the job for two seasons with the Wee County relegated from Division 3 of the Allianz Football League this season, before Longford ended their year last Sunday in the first round of the Leinster Championship.

Kierans posted a message on social media to thanks all involved during his time in charge.

A statement from Louth GAA read: "Following a meeting of the Louth GAA Management Committee on Thursday night, it has been agreed that Louth GAA will not be offering Wayne Kierans a third year as Manager of the Louth GAA Senior Football Team.

"Wayne has been in charge of our Senior football team since 2018 and his two year term came to an end following defeat to Longford on Saturday last in the Leinster Senior Football Championship.

"Louth GAA Management Committee would like to sincerely thank Wayne and his backroom team of Cathal Murray, Liam Kelleher, Ciaran Marks and Shane McCoy for their efforts.

"They have shown professionalism, enthusiasm, dedication and continued courtesy over the last two years and we have enjoyed a positive working relationship with Wayne and his Management Team.

"Louth GAA would like to wish Wayne and his Management Team all the best in their future endeavours.

"We will now immediately begin the process in seeking a New Senior Football Team Manager.

"A sub-committee consisting of Peter Fitzpatrick, Bob Doheny, Sean McClean, Aidan Berrill and Francie McMullen have been appointed to oversee this process."
