Players’ survey led to O’Hora stepping down

Roscommon LGFA say this week that they will be appointing an interim management team to look after the Intermediate ladies team for the forthcoming relegation play off against Longford following the resignation of Diane O’Hora last week.

It has been a frustrating year for Roscommon ladies football with the team’s failure to reach the league final and two defeats in the championship to Kildare and Laois.

It emerged over the weekend that the Roscommon players carried out a survey amongst themselves which found that a majority were dissatisfied with the Mayo woman as manager. The results of the survey were conveyed to the team manager by the Chairman of the LGFA, Brendan Cregg.

Diane O’Hora said that she was very disappointed with the turn of events and wished the Roscommon team the best of luck in the play-off and in the future.

Chairman Brendan Cregg said that a temporary management would be appointed for the relegation play-off game against Longford on Sunday week and that a permanent management team would be appointed going forward after that.
