Louth boss Fitzpatrick steps down
GAA:Louth senior football manager Peter Fitzpatrick has stepped down from his post, ending a 30-year association with the Wee County.
Fitzpatrick tendered his resignation today to “enable a new manager time to settle in and view as much club football as possible.”
He said: “It has been an absolute privilege and honour to have played my part in Louth GAA for over 30 years as player and manager. I feel I have achieved all I can at the moment for Louth football, and it would be selfish of me to stay on as manager, even though I would dearly love to.”
Fitzpatrick led Louth since 2009 and in that time they won Division Three, reached two O’Byrne Cup finals and the 2010 Leinster final, when they were controversially beaten by Meath.
That same year, Fitzpatrick enjoyed junior provincial success before his side was knocked out of the All-Ireland by eventual winners Sligo.
