Listowel native Jerome Stack has decided to step down as manager of the St. Brigid’s senior football team.

Stack, who has been at the helm for the last two years, led the club to a very successful 2023 season, winning both the Roscommon and Connacht titles, beating Castlehaven in the All-Ireland semi-final and falling to an agonising one-point defeat against Glen in the All-Ireland club senior football final at Croke Park last Sunday.

In a statement on social media earlier this afternoon, St Brigid’s said: “Our club senior team manager Jerome Stack has decided to step down. Jerome has been at the helm as manager for the last two years, guiding us to the All-Ireland Final last Sunday.”

“Jerome has brought a wealth of coaching knowledge and experience to our team which brought us on a brilliant journey this year and saw our players bring that level of performance to Croke Park last Sunday We know the players will benefit greatly in the future from Jerome’s time with St Brigid’s and his driven and meticulous work ethic.”

“St. Brigid’s executive would sincerely like to thank Jerome for all his hard work, dedication and commitment to the club as manager. We would also like to extend our thanks to  Jerome’s management and  backroom team for their dedication over the past 2 years.”

“Wishing Jerome, the very best of luck in his future endeavours.”

It is understood that a new manager will be ratified at the club’s AGM which takes place tomorrow evening (Friday) and it is widely speculated that ex-Roscommon senior football manager Anthony Cunningham is set to take the job.
